Eunice Kennedy Shriver day is Saturday, Sept. 24. It's a day that brings people together to do activities in honor of Shriver and her commitment to help people with intellectual disabilities.

She began Camp Shriver, which started on her Maryland farm and later turned into the Special Olympics.

In Focus anchor Kelly Swoope sat down with Jim Schmutz, President and CEO of Special Olympics Maryland.
