In a statement, Michelle Obama said, “Eunice Kennedy Shriver was a passionate champion for those with developmental challenges, empowering them to fulfill their highest potential. Her work to promote inclusion and acceptance transformed the lives of countless young athletes and inspired us all. I am incredibly honored to present this award to her son to celebrate her life’s work.”
