Special Olympics Medalist Shares Experience; Throws First Pitch at Giants Game

With unwarranted modesty, Napa’s Jose Ayala shared his Special Olympics experience to an awestruck audience at NBRC’s Board Meeting September 2. An athlete through and through who won a silver medal in javelin and a bronze medal in the 4-by-100-meter relay,Jose shrugged off any suggestion that his competitors posed challenges.  But Jose was dwarfed by the pride in his mothers voice as she described the great abilities and interest her son has always had in sports, as evidenced by his collection of medals. It was an amazing night for NBRC’s Board, and everyone touched by Jose’s great achievements. NBRC is a proud supporter of Jose and all Special Olympics athletes.
