ROCKINGHAM -- Dawn Grooms has participated in Richmond County Special Olympics (RCSO) since she was 10 years old; Dawn is now 49 years old. She competes in all the local competitions and has made it to the state level numerous times. When asked what her favorite game was, she stated “bocce.” Dawn has helped with many fundraisers for RCSO throughout the years, which includes Buddy Roe’s Bike Ride Fundraiser each May. This inspired Dawn to take the initiative to start a fundraiser on her own.
