Amy Begley

Amy Begley

Amy Begley is an Indiana native, graduated from East Noble High School (Kendallville, IN) in 1996. She was a 4-time Indiana state champion, a mental attitude award winner and 3-time Footlocker finalist during her prep career. Begley, a 15-time All-American and two-time NCAA national champion while competing for the University of Arkansas, made the 2008 Olympic team at 10,000 meters with a dramatic last lap, racing the clock to beat the required "A" time standard for inclusion. In 2009, she finished sixth at the IAAF World Championships at the same distance in a personal best 31:13.78., making her the eighth-fastest American woman in history. She finished her professional career with six national titles, four of them-at 3000m indoors and 10,000 meters on the track and at 5K and 15K on the roads-in 2009.

Amy is the current coach for Atlanta Track Club. She coaches the elite team, but also coaches training programs for all ages and paces. Among her other endeavors since retiring from professional competition, Begley in 2012 founded the Distance Divas in Portland, OR, to help post-collegiate women bridge the gap to a possible professional career. She also founded the Track is for Everybody Foundation, a nonprofit developed to provide youth educational and sports programs. Prior to her position in Atlanta, Amy coached at the University of Connecticut for 18 months.

Andrew Peterson

Andrew Peterson

Andrew Peterson has proven the skeptics wrong time and time again.

Born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Andrew lived in foster care and wasn’t expected to walk or talk normally. All that changed when Craig Peterson adopted Andrew and his three siblings. Although learning was never easy, Andrew always tried his best. Upon running his first 3K race at age nine, he found a niche.

With the support of his father, Andrew developed into an accomplished distance runner. He earned four varsity letters in high school and won over 50 gold medals in state competitions. At the 2014 Special Olympics National Games, Andrew brought home three gold medals – running personal bests of 4:47 in the 1500M and 10:22 in the 3000M.

Four years ago, Andrew joined the Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program. He has since addressed over 60,000 high school students about respect and ability, as well as 100 community organizations and businesses. He’s also shared his gifts with younger athletes by serving as an assistant cross country coach for two local high schools and his own Special Olympics team.

In 2014, Andrew was a finalist to appear on the cover of Runner's World magazine – inspiring thousands of families across the country and giving them hope for their own children. His story and picture appeared in the December issue. Additionally, he was named the 2014 Outstanding Self-Advocate for The Arc of Indiana and 2015 Athlete of the Year for Special Olympics Indiana.

Now 22 years old, Andrew continues to impress people with his confidence and unassuming nature.
