Meet Bennett!

Meet Bennett! 🤗

Bennett joined Special Olympics South Dakota Pierre Wildcats almost 2 years ago. You can find him on the basketball court, taking part in athletics, softball, and bowling.

He enjoys all things music outside of Special Olympics playing the piano and the drums. Bennett is also very Patriotic and loves everything to do with the USA!

Find him in the water during the summer between boating and kayaking, he also enjoys doing jigsaw puzzles, bike riding, Legos, and cheering on the Vikings (they’ll get to the Super Bowl this year, hopefully)!

His favorite memory with Special Olympics was winning three gold medals at the 2023 Summer Games.

This year, he was a finisher in his first-ever River Kid Triathlon. He also participated in the Torch Run and jumped into the Missouri River for the Polar Plunge in April!

If you see Bennett at the next Special Olympics event, be sure to go say hi!
