Hi! I’m Kyle, CEO of Ky’s Kards and Special Olympics Minnesota athlete with the St. Michael-Albertville Stallions delegation.
Special Olympics has provided me with lifelong friendships, a competitive outlet, exercise and challenged me to learn new sports like bocce ball. I’ve competed in bowling, basketball and flag football. My Unified flag football team even took home a silver medal at the 2018 USA Games in Seattle!
Ky’s Kards provides meaningful employment opportunities for individuals like me with Down Syndrome and other intellectual disabilities. Each Kard is a tribute to Down Syndrome/Trisomy 21. For example, the berries with holly on the 2022 Festival of Trees ornament feature the extra third chromosome linked to Down Syndrome!
Thank you for supporting Special Olympics Minnesota and for making the world a more inclusive place for all!
