Tim Harris, of Tim’s Big Heart Enterprises,will join us as our Grand Marshall this year! You may have seen Tim on the news hugging President Obama. Perhaps you saw him showcasing his multiple Special Olympic medals. You also may have received one of his famous hugs at Tim’s Place, the restaurant he owned for five years in New Mexico. Maybe you had the pleasure to watch him speak at one of his many conferences appearances including TEDx. Tim spreads his message of love and inspiration as he travels around the world helping to “break down barriers, get rid of any stereotypes, and inspire the whole world to follow their dreams!”
