Staffer’s most memorable Olympic moments: ABBI: It was the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics. I was only 11years-old but I still remember the moment gymnast Kerri Strug nailed the landing of her vault, despite a damaged ankle. As my entire family watched we gasped in horror, shock and pure amazement. Strug’s performance guaranteed the gold medal for the U.S. Strug literally took one for the team, which is one of the many qualities an Olympian should possess.

STACY: Like most little girls, I had an idol – someone I wanted to emulate – it was Olympian Nadia Comaneci. I dreamed of being a gymnast just like her. Luckily, my folks decided to take us to the Olympics in Montreal. Sitting next to my dad, I found myself watching my favorite athlete become the first gymnast in Olympic history to earn a perfect 10. It was a “perfect” moment, one that I’ve always treasured. Witnessing that kind of perfection inspires the human spirit to see that there is no limit to what we can accomplish, whether in an Olympic venue or in our own community.

A

s the world cheered for their nation’s greatest athletes in the 2012 Olympic Games in London we couldn’t help but notice the parallels between Olympians and volunteers.

Olympians, with their athletic excellence, pursue a goal that some deem impossible. But somewhere between lofty and laudable, the best of the best make their dreams come true. Though, in our eyes, attaining gold medal status is not limited to athletes. Volunteerism requires a commitment to make the world a better place, a goal that our community strives for daily. When we opened up the call for nominations of outstanding local volunteers, we were flooded with the following qualities: discipline, passion, altruism and allegiance. Within the pages of our Olympic-themed Volunteer Guide you’ll find images and stories from inspirational volunteers and admirable athletes. Together, we feel, they represent greatness. Our guest columnist Greg Louganis, a four-time Olympic diving gold medalist and active volunteer within the GLBT community, shares what it means to dedicate oneself to a goal or cause and the qualities required to be successful (page 12). Fellow Olympians also share their thoughts on the importance of volunteerism (page 13).

MEREDITH: To be honest, I didn’t have very much knowledge about the Olympics when we started planning for this issue. But after tracking down South Florida’s Olympic participants, I’ve grown a fond appreciation for the competition and what it entails. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’ve never worked with a more gracious and grounded group of people; their patience and generosity taught me that being great in all facets of life is equally important. Every four years I will look forward to the Olympics and Paralympics, remembering fondly the fruitful summer I worked with (and learned from) some of the best athletes – and individuals – in the world.

As always, the issue provides a listing of local available volunteer opportunities with a new design that can be pulled in its entirety and held for future reference (starting on page 21). So pick your passion and pass it on. This year’s featured volunteers exhibit a gold standard with their motivating attitudes and acts of compassion. Posing with them are local Olympic stars who capture the essence of stalwart dedication; both are unstoppable. When it came time to select the featured Olympians for our cover, the task seemed difficult at first. But it didn’t take long for us to think of a few local Olympians whose dedication is admirable. These truly amazing athletes enjoy the thrills and challenges of competition despite life’s daily obstacles. So we worked with Sun Sentinel staff photographer Robert Duyos to capture the enthusiasm of Taravella High School’s Special Olympics athletes. These Olympians are at the top of our podium. While many of us will never have the opportunity to compete in the Olympics, much less win a medal, we can still perform like an Olympian in every part of our lives. To be the best one can be and to donate one’s time to the betterment of others is nothing short of commendable.

COLUMN

GREG LOUGANIS

A

t the Olympics this summer in London, I was asked about the “sacrifices” I had made in my life to achieve excellence. I said, “I don’t view what I did as a “sacrifice” but a choice as to my life and lifestyle. For Olympians: it isn’t a sacrifice, it is a practice and a choice. The decision to commit myself to attain an extraordinary goal isn’t about what I gave up – it is about what I was able to gain. I don’t think in terms of what I am missing, I focus on what I am trying to achieve. The decisions Louganis, 5 time Olympic medalist won gold in I made centered around what I both the platform and springboard events in the could do to be the very best I 1984 and 1988 Olympics. could possibly be. It takes great effort to get up every morning and dedicate yourself to training, healthy living and the mental and emotional strains of high performance. I feel the rewards of success vastly outweigh the inconveniences and even the hardships of injury or competitive disappointment. Anyone who sets out to become an Olympian knows that the road is long and full of peaks and valleys. It takes endurance to climb the mountain and stand at the summit. I’ve never met an athlete who said it was easy. But we do more often than not make a game out of the challenges we are faced with. I believe deeply that no one achieves greatness on his own. Even in individual sports, we have a team around us – coaches, parents, friends, fellow athletes – who support our dreams and help us stay focused on how to achieve them. With whatever it is we want to accomplish, it’s important to have people around us who believe in us. In my own athletic achievements the people in my life were my coach, Ron O’Brien and Mom. Among the lessons she taught me was the idea that I should make every place I go better because I was there. I think this is a dream shared by many people who dedicate themselves to volunteerism. It isn’t always easy to get up and train, and similarly, it isn’t always easy to get up and work without pay for the sake of an idea – knowing we can make the world better in big ways and small. But just like an athlete, those who volunteer shouldn’t think of what they do as a sacrifice but as a choice – a decision to dedicate their time to helping others. When an issue or a dream seems too big, sometimes it’s best to stay focused on what we have in front of us at that moment in time. In 1980, when America boycotted the Moscow Olympics, I had to rethink my life and postpone my dream of an Olympic gold medal for four years. It seemed a long time away. So some days, my coach and I had to create little goals to get me through a practice and give me a sense of achievement. We played games that proved to work to my benefit in breaking records; we do get good at what we practice! I think many people who volunteer go through the same process: when the big issues seem overwhelming, we just have to break it down and find one thing we can work toward and count as a success. For me in my everyday life that means just picking up litter I see on the street. It’s the little things we do every day that result in the big achievements that change the world. That’s true for Olympic athletes and that’s true for volunteers. So whatever your passion is, know that great achievement comes down to little acts: believing in the worthiness of your goal, surrounding yourself with the right team and turning up every day to make some progress, great or small, in support of your ambition. The formula for success is the same for all endeavors and the world is counting on people to dream big. No worthy goal requires us to “sacrifice” – it requires us to make a choice: To be the best we can be in whatever we do!

When trying to become an Olympian you have to be dedicated to the cause and seeing the project through to the end. This is the same with volunteering; sometimes it is hard to see the finish line or to know whether a difference is being made. But by consistently investing in the project, you are ensuring that the end result will be positively affected.

This was my first Olympics and I felt very special to be a part. It took many years of dedication and focus to reach this goal. I moved to the USA, sacrificing my family and friends, but all this was worth it. Not just from being part of the Olympic family, but the journey to get there was incredible. I enjoyed so much along the the way. I think being a volunteer is the same. You can’t only think about the final results, but that all the small contribution and commitment will generate a better world.

Bob Bryan and twin brother, Mike Bryan

SOCIETY BROWARD 13

Over the years, I have dedicated countless hours towards achieving my goal of Olympic gold. This year, I reached that goal. The dedication, commitment, passion, hard work, and endurance required to achieve Olympic gold is not too different from the qualities of volunteers who have dedicated countless hours towards helping others. Volunteers do so much good for the various causes, but often times do not get the credit deserved because most of their work is done behind the scenes. This was very similar to my preparation for the Olympics. I spent countless hours behind the scenes training for the largest tournament of my career. Helping others, while not getting paid to do so, takes an incredible amount of passion and dedication. Volunteers give their time because they want to, not because they have to. This is where I feel like I can really relate to the volunteers. I do not play tennis for the money or because someone is forcing me to. I play tennis because I truly love it, which puts the volunteers and myself in the same boat.

Brotspies volunteers in the computer lab, where his duties range from simple tasks, such as giving residents a username and password, to more complex duties, such as helping them with their resumes.

“In the last two months, I’ve seen lawyers and ones with Ph.Ds. You get a different view of what homelessness is.” For Brotspies, volunteer work is more than just outward looking. “You say, ‘How can I help other people?’ You don’t realize that you benefit yourself. You give something and get something back. It’s a two-way street.”

39

When asked what his favorite adventure is thus far, Brotspies answers without hesitation and with, of course, enthusiasm: “This one!”

SOCIETY BROWARD

Quickly, he learned that residents have varied backgrounds. “Many of them come in with surprisingly limited skills that you and I take for granted. A guy came in and asked me what Google is. They are not always what you expect.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

To say Herb Brotspies is enthusiastic would be an understatement. Although technically retired, Brotspies is an adjunct professor at a local university yet still finds time to not only volunteer but also actively participate in his community’s Adventurers’ Club. It’s with this club that he learned about Broward Partnership for the Homeless. The club took its members there for a tour, and soon after, Brotspies began volunteering.

O LY M P I C Q U A L I T Y:

Mattie Brown, 65, can’t wait to start her weekly 7 a.m. volunteer shift at the Broward County VA Clinic in Sunrise where she greets and assists incoming patients. Brown, whose husband is a Vietnam War veteran, entered retirement earlier this year. Inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama’s “dedication to help military families,” Brown enjoys her interaction with the men and women who have sacrificed for the country. Speaking slowly and calmly, Brown shares a recent moving experience she had: “A mom was rolling her son in a wheelchair, and he started crying and said, ‘My mom shouldn’t have to do this because she’s 80-something years old.’ I said, ‘Sir, I’m a mother and a grandmother, and I know she wouldn’t want anyone else to take care of you.’ The mom smiled and said, ‘That is exactly right.’ “They are so proud … wearing their military hats. They are so appreciative ... to just see a smiling face. I want to help any way I can. My life isn’t perfect, I have suffered losses, but I can still give back and inspire.”

FOREST WILLIAMS

BY MEREDITH CLEMENTS

Though he’s no stranger to volunteer work, Forest Williams was initially intimidated by the commitment required for volunteers of Deliver the Dream. But after his first retreat, he was “hooked.” The 46-year-old entrepreneur, who was recruited by an employee, has now volunteered for seven weekend retreats. Deliver the Dream provides expenses-paid weekends for families affected by children with serious illnesses or crisis. Before the retreat, volunteers meet at the camp location on Thursday for orientation. Friday, the families arrive and volunteers kick the weekend off with a night of dinner and games, like karaoke, bingo and Wii. Volunteers are assigned to an individual family for the weekend, which is where Forest implements his cardinal rule: “You don’t want the family to do anything but have fun. “When the parents show up, there is a ton of hesitation. … As a parent of a special-needs child, you are so used to being protective and not getting much help … so as volunteers,

we want to say, ‘We got you. We got you this weekend. Don’t worry about it. Let go, have fun.’ There is a bond that happens almost immediately.” The rest of the weekend is filled with activities that range from canoeing to theatrical performances; the weekend’s goal is to alleviate stress and enhance coping skills. Describing the experience as emotional, Williams says, “It’s amazing, I’ve never seen anything like it with all the volunteer work I’ve done. … I’ve stayed friends with a lot of my families after the retreat. We Facebook, we email. The bond goes beyond the retreat. “[Volunteering] enriches my life. It absolutely does. I get more satisfaction out of volunteer work than anything else I do in my life. It’s hard to explain. “My goal is to retire and do nothing but volunteer work.”

DONALD BARBER BY ABBI SCHORR

For more than seven years, Donald Barber – or “Mr. Barber,” as the employees call him – has volunteered as the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center’s computer programmer. The 72-year-old retired data analyst for the Air Force’s National Air and Space Intelligence Center brings his vast knowledge and experience to the role, working twice a week at the center and from home on most nights. Helping with individual computer problems, maintaining status reports and making changes to databases are among his responsibilities. Visiting HandsOn Broward’s website, Barber “searched for available opportunities that needed my skills. I found out that the center was having database problems, so it was a good fit for me. They keep me busy, so I’m happy. “I feel I’ve been blessed. And they call me ‘Mr. Barber,’ which I like. I’m not one to seek fame and glory; the center was very good to put me in for this. I just always try to do my best.”
