Sue Borden has been a Special Olympics Massachusetts volunteer for 15 years. She has been a medical volunteer, registration coordinator, logistical specialist, scorekeeper, sign language interpreter and much more since she started.
On October 2nd, Borden, along with a class of athletes, coaches, volunteers, families and sponsors, will be recognized at the 2014 Special Olympics Massachusetts Hall of Fame induction ceremony at The Yawkey Sports Training Center in Marlborough, MA.
“To me the greatest honor is just to be nominated,” said Borden. But after being nominated five times in total, she admits there’s a special honor this time around for her induction.
When asked to sum up what Special Olympics has meant to her through the years, Borden said, “It’s so neat to see the athletes put everything they have into what they’re doing, whether it’s competing, or the dance — just to watch the joy they get out of living life is just awesome.”
