A Letter from

Wang Naikun

Chairperson, Special Olympics China

Dear Mr. Timothy P. Shriver, 

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your dear father, Sargent Shriver, a pioneer for Special Olympics. I am writing to extend my deep condolence and sincere sympathy to you and your family. 

For Special Olympics, Mr. Sargent Shriver was a leader during a time of strong international growth, a push that culminated in the 2007 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Shanghai, China. 

I believe that you will carry forward the spirit of Special Olympics your father loved deeply. 

Yours sincerely, 

Wang Naikun
Chairperson of China Special Olympics
