Hannah Teter, the 2006 Olympic halfpipe gold medalist and 2010 silver medalist, missed the podium by just one spot in 2014. She also has a total of seven X Games medals to her credit. But she says one of her biggest accomplishments was becoming the first action sports athlete chosen to represent the Special Olympics as a global ambassador.

"Growing up, it was always in the back of my mind that if I ever make it big, I want to do something huge to help out in the world," says Teter, who has founded two charities to raise money for World Vision and Children International. "Some people might think it's fame and some people might think it's money or gold medals. To me, it's being able to be a part of world-changing organizations like the Special Olympics."
