Special Olympics Maryland athlete Candice Hergert from Anne Arundel County loves playing Bocce and will be attending the Special Olympic USA games this year! She is very excited to go to the USA games this year to compete. No matter how challenging the competition is this year “It is all about having fun”, Candice said.


Candice loves playing bocce because she gets to make new friends. Previously to playing bocce she competed in many other sports. Her favorite prior to bocce being Kayaking. She enjoyed Kayaking because “I got to challenge myself” she said. She chose bocce because she thought she needed a different sport to do.


Candice wanted people to know that she is “an athletic person”. Outside of Special Olympics she enjoys camping and going on vacation with her family. Beyond playing sports and being with family; Candice enjoys writing in her free time.
