Colin Davidson is one of Special Olympics Massachusetts’ most recognized and most accomplished athletes who has been part of the organization’s family for over 15-years. He is well known for his tireless work to be his best on the field and off the field. Colin has achieved countless medals in Alpine skiing, basketball, athletics, sailing golf and softball. His athletic expertise has led him to success at local, state and national competitions. He looks forward to the annual Winter Games held annually in his hometown of Worcester where he owns the court in basketball. Recently Colin joined 60 SOMA athletes and traveled to Lincoln, Nebraska to compete at the 2010 Special Olympics USA National Games to compete in soccer with his fellow Shrewsbury Parks Teammates.
Colin feels Special Olympics has opened doors in his life to help him become an accomplished student, a great employee, a good driver, accomplished public speaker and a motivated fundraiser. Colin takes on many philanthropic pursuits like generating a drive to collect coats for veterans every winter but he most enjoys raising money for SOMA. In the annual Passion Plunge event he has raised over $12,000 to date by jumping into the icy Atlantic Ocean every winter. He recently ran in the ‘Trick or Trot’ race as part of his training regimen for the World Games in Athens and raised $2,359 for SOMA in the 5K with his team. Let Colin’s spirit of giving inspire you.
