Catherine Boyle

051-SO-01-02-17-LR.jpgCatherine Boyle is a seasoned Special Olympics athlete, having trained and competed with Special Olympics Wanganui for 23 years! Over that time Catherine has tried her hand at a number of sports but is currently competing in swimming, indoor bowls and bocce.

She has competed both nationally and internationally – at six Special Olympics New Zealand National Summer Games and at the World Summer Games in Dublin in 2003.

“I have met lots of friends through Special Olympics and have travelled to lots of tournaments all over New Zealand,” Catherine says. “I’ve also become a better person – and I’m not as scared of talking to other people now.”

Catherine also contributes to Special Olympics Wanganui as the athlete representative on the Committee, a role which sees her talking to other athletes in the Club and taking their thoughts and ideas to the rest of the Committee.

And she is an active participant in the community, as a member and past President of People First, and a leader at Bible Friends. She also works three mornings a week as a kitchen hand at Wanganui Enterprises.

As a Global Messenger, Catherine is looking forward to giving back to Special Olympics.

“I would like to talk with other people and give back to Special Olympics for all the help they have given me.”
