Episode 40: Eunice Kennedy Shriver and her Special Olympics

The Olympics are still going strong and so is the inspiration.  Teresa starts of with Anthill Creations, a non-profit making playgrounds out of upcycled materials in the poorest parts of India.  Next up is a deep dive on Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who despite many family tragedies, focused on improving the lives of special needs individuals and created the Special Olympics as a celebration of what amazing things they can achieve.  Amy digs into the Boys in the Boat, an amazing tale of the US Olympic rowing team as they face challenges on the way to the 1936 Olympics and defy all odds.  We finish up with some rapid-fire questions for Teresa, where we learn whether Teresa excelled in ballet (spoiler alert: she did not).  Its a great day to get inspired!
