Brady Lum, president and COO of Special Olympics, met with documentation team members from UNL at the power lifting event. Lum was once part of the management team at Coca-Cola for 15 years before getting involved with the Special Olympics. Asked about his move from Coca-Cola to Special Olympics, he said, “It just felt right.”

Lum works directly with the CEO of Coca-Cola, who also happened to be on the board of directors for Special Olympics. When the position opened, he turned to Lum. Lum decided to attend a Special Olympics event and said, “You volunteer one time, and you’re in it for life.”

Lum continues as a part of the organization as a member since 2008. His advice to students was to “soak it all in. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. Soak it in.”
