In 2004, Julianne Malley and her family moved from Arizona to Craig to be closer to other family members. Malley, being new to the area, was looking for a way to meet new people. She heard about the Special Olympics and decided to compete. What started as something just for fun, she said, created lifelong hobbies and great friendships.
