molly

 

Molly Hincka:

Doctors said Molly would never walk or even talk. Her mother knew different and was determined to never allow that to happen. She never saw the things her child could not do; she only imagined what she could do. Molly’s mother turned out to be right when experiencing her child do the impossible, walking at age 4 and talking by age 5.

Now, 20 years later, Molly is a Special Olympics athlete who participated in the 2011 World Games. Molly was a top performer at the games and took home a Silver medal in the 3000 meter run and Bronze medals in the 4 x 400 meter relay and 5000 meter run. Molly is now preparing to participate in the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Central Route relay which will have her running the five-mile stretch of the Mackinac bridge this coming September.

Special Olympics Michigan continues to provide Molly with the transformative power of sport for opportunities to experience inclusion, acceptance, unity, respect, friendship and joy.
