Special Olympics benefits Door and Kewaunee County communities

Local organizers of Special Olympics say the debate in Congress over continued federal funding overlooks some key benefits to all communities including those in Door and Kewaunee Counties.  Carla Lieb, Athletic Director for Special Olympics Northeastern Wisconsin, says before Special Olympics started institutionalization was the only option for the intellectually disabled. Lieb says those attitudes have changed.



President Trump responded to days of pressure and scrapped plans to cut the nearly $18-million the federal budget earmarked for Special Olympics.
