Mareena Mattison - Team Illinois

A little bit about Mareena - 

Hi! My name is Mareena and I have been a Special Olympics Champion Athlete for the past 11 years. As you can see, my favorite sport is gymnastics. 

I'm also a Global Messenger, and talking in front of others is not easy for me, but Special Olympics is such an important part of my life, and the life of others.
I've also performed with Jason Mraz for the 50th Anniversary of Special Olympics.

Not only for athletics - but for ~ well ~ life! I've grown in so many ways because Special Olympics allowed me to be...............ME and cheers me on to my goals.  I plan on attending college in the Fall 2022.


And the winner is.........

Mundelein PD Frozen 5.0 as the cast of Shrek!
