The Walk, The Talk

At 8 years old, Scott McCullough was introduced to Special Olympics and 40 years later, he is still walking the walk. This time, it’s on snowshoes. From Nashua, New Hampshire, McCullough trained in a variety of sports with Special Olympics New Hampshire long before he learned of snowshoeing. Now nominated to represent Special Olympics USA in the Special Olympics World Winter Games Torino 2025, he’s proven his ability to walk that walk. And for those who know McCullough, he can talk the talk too.

For 12 years, McCullough has hosted his own video series, “Special Talk with Scott McCullough.” Recorded and produced with BRB TV LLC, Nashua Public Television Channel 96, he hosts Special Olympics New Hampshire coaches and athletes to educate the community about inclusivity. In conversations with friends, fellow teammates, and mentors, he shares the community he calls home.

“Special Olympics has changed everybody’s lives,” said McCullough. “It was very lonely, but now we have Special Olympics… So, we talk about everything, like how my friends have grown up.”

An established athlete leader, his advocacy transcends airwaves. Serving as a board member on the Special Olympics New Hampshire Board of Directors (2011-14), fundraising for their Program’s annual Penguin Plunge, and befriending Special Olympics athletes nationwide, his talk is one that matters. But to win gold in snowshoeing, his walk will be what matters most.
