Meet Special Olympics athlete Taylan Peters. Basketball has changed his life. It’s given him somewhere to go where he feels important, where nothing else matters. Being part of the Special Olympics team makes Taylan feel like he belongs.
Taylan’s father Garnet Peters recounts his personal story of how his sons plan changed and their Special Olympics journey started.
“I brought Taylan every Friday evening to practice and sat and watched. Until their first tournament…everything changed for me” Garnet Peters explains.
The sport setting and anything to do with big crowds and noise was the opposite of what Taylan liked, but he also loved basketball and would watch it all the time.
