Malika Ait-Mohammed Parent: 'We Are Unstoppable'
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
Last week, I was part of something special -- something more special even than my quotidian role as Under Secretary General at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. I was a guest of honor at the Special Olympics World Summit 2013 in Pyeongchang, South Korea. My very first encounter was with a group of passionate Summit volunteers. I was struck by their enthusiasm. It reminded me of the strength and unique inspiration that I see in the many Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers I meet around the world. A volunteer can welcome and inspire others, especially ones as committed as those at the Special Olympics Global Summit. I had many interactions over the last week with Special Olympics participants -- athletes, sports celebrities, coaches, donors, state leaders, staff and volunteers -- and my sense of enjoyment and inspiration increased with every encounter. Alternating between Summer Games and Winter Games, Special Olympics World Games br ...

  • 2008
    Age 48
    In 2008, Shriver and supporters called for a boycott of the movie Tropic Thunder, claiming that it mocks people with mental disabilities.
    More Details Hide Details The movie is written, produced by and stars Ben Stiller. In a commentary for CNN, Shriver wrote in part, Don't show or see "Tropic Thunder." The degrading use of the word "retard" together with the broader humiliation of people with intellectual disabilities in the film goes way too far. When the R-word is casually bandied about and when bumbling, clueless caricatures designed to mimic the behavior of people with intellectual disabilities are on screen, they have an unmistakable outcome: They mock, directly or indirectly, people with intellectual disabilities. They perpetuate the worst stereotypes. They further exclusion and isolation. They are simply mean.
  • 2006
    Age 46
    He is currently a board member of Malaria No More, a New York-based nonprofit that was launched at the 2006 White House Summit with the goal of ending all deaths caused by malaria.
    More Details Hide Details He is currently the Chairman of Special Olympics. Timothy and his brother Anthony Shriver have recently aligned the Special Olympics and Best Buddies (founded by Anthony Shriver), to create the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Challenge event, aimed to encourage greater acceptance and inclusion for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a condition that affected their late aunt Rosemary Kennedy. Shriver has served on the Board of Directors of The Future Project, a national initiative to empower young people to discover their passion and change the world, since its founding. And he has written a memoir Fully Alive: Discovering What Matters Most, published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (2014). As chairman of Special Olympics, Timothy Shriver has campaigned against mocking of and discrimination against participants in Special Olympics. He has specifically argued against use of what he calls "the R word," meaning retarded, stating that the word, "retard", is very offensive and people with intellectual disabilities should be respected and treated like all other people.
