Aetna Foundation aligned with Special Olympics New Jersey starting in 2015 by providing support for the Athlete Leadership Program. This contribution was made to the organization in memory of a colleague, Kristin Ritter, who was an extremely active Board Member of the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games.
Ms. Ritter was an executive for the Aetna Foundation and leader in her field. She was dedicated to the Special Olympics mission and passionate about Special Olympics New Jersey athletes. The Aetna Foundation continued Ms. Ritter’s legacy by supporting the Athlete Leadership Program that witnesses Special Olympics New Jersey athletes who display leadership in making decisions that affect the Special Olympics New Jersey community.
