Rotarians welcomed more than 6,500 athletes from 165 countries during the 2015 Special Olympics World Games at the Los Angeles Colliseum.

Wishard helped coordinate a charter a bus for Malibu Rotarians, their families and friends, along with Rotarians from Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Santa Monica and the Westwood Rotary Clubs to the opening ceremonies. 

They joined 1,000 Rotarians and 60,000 other fans at the opening ceremonies, wearing special yellow T-shirts created for the event.
