Amy Kaptein PAGE


There has been some new and exciting news at the Kaptein household that some of you may or may not have heard about. Amy was chosen as 1 out of 2 special athletes in Michigan representing the United States to participate in the World Special Olympics in South Korea! She will be participating in Cross Country Skiing.


How did this come about you might ask? Well last year Amy did Cross Country Skiing for the first time! She has never done it before, but her coach had asked and of course, she said YES! Well due to the lack of snow, there wasn't a lot of practice time :) However, when it came time for State - Amy took home the GOLD! She was then put in for a drawing for the World Olympics in South Korea. On a Tuesday night, mom and dad got the call that she was selected!!

Amy has been involved with Special Olympics for 17 years. She plays Basketball, Volleyball, Softball, Soccer, and Cross Country Skiing. Amy is 26 years old and lives in Jenison, Michigan. Aside from Special Olympics she also keeps busy with Special Needs Bible Studies, family activities and watching sports, cheering on the Tigers, Michigan Wolverines, Hope College and watching her brother play for Covenant Christian!! Amy is the oldest of five children. She has attended Heritage Christian School, Covenant Christian High School, Jenison Public High School and Hudsonville/Zeeland CBI. She is employed by Jenison Culvers, working 5 days a week from 11:00 – 2:00. Amy lives in Harmony Homes, a Christian group home for disabled women,

These winter games are scheduled for January 2013. Amy will be heading out west sometime in December for practice , and also meeting the other athletes and coaches that will be going along.

Ruth and Kurt Kaptein and Amy
