Former Philadelphia Eagle Surprises SOPA Athlete

Call to Action

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to leave a majority of sports and events on hold, Special Olympics launched Call To Action, an initiative to encourage our athletes to remain active and lift their spirits by surprising them with a phone call from their heroes.

Recently, one of our incredible athletes, Nick Caywood, received a very special surprise Zoom call from Mack Hollins, a Special Olympics supporter and former wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles. Mack is one of Nick's favorite players, so he was very excited to get to meet and connect with one of his heroes. Mack was able to offer his words of encouragement to stay active during these challenging times.
