Meet Patrick!

Meet Patrick! 🏰

Patrick is with the Special Olympics South Dakota – Rapid City Flame delegation and has been for 13 years! He is very happy and quiet. He participates in bocce, softball, bowling, basketball, swimming, and shot put in athletics.

Outside of competing for Special Olympics, he plays solitaire, Angry Birds, and watches Wheel of Fortune. He works on a Black Hills Works contract with Monument Health in the warehouse.

His favorite memory would have to be attending USA Games last year at Disney World as a bocce player and winning an Individual gold medal, a Unified Doubles silver medal with his sister, and a Team bronze medal.

He loves Disney movies, watching clips on the internet, loves animals (but not having them touch him), swimming, and driving his dad’s riding lawn mower to cut the grass.

If you see Patrick at Fall Classic this year, be sure to say hi!
