Providing people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in their communities.
For people with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics is often the only place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities and develop a belief in themselves. We provide resources to allow them to live a healthy lifestyle and evolve as leaders and important members of society.
For athletes, Special Olympics sports provide a gateway to empowerment, competence, acceptance, and joy. The lessons learned in Special Olympics also impact their life skills. Sports training enhances focus and gives participants a structure for learning important lessons about perseverance, endurance and setting goals.
