In the spirit of Giving Tuesday this year, and to continue with the ongoing efforts of the ISlide Hero program, we honored an individual who was nominated by a peer of theirs for her giving nature and selflessness.
Dalene Basden, a parent of 5 children, 1 of whom was diagnosed with Klienfelters Syndrome in 1993, has been running the Lynn Special Olympics program for the last 20+ years. From the logistics of making sure the team is eligible every year, having gym space, transportation, or even feeding the athletes, Dalene has dedicated much of her time to the children and families in the community.
