For over 45 years, Special Olympics has been improving the quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities.   The spirit of Special Olympics - - skill, courage, sharing and joy - - incorporates universal values which transcend all boundaries of geography, nationality, political philosophy, gender, age, race, and religion. Special Olympics believes that through sports training and competition, people with intellectual disabilities benefit physically, mentally, and socially.  


There are 17,700 athletes who compete in 180 competitions throughout the region in 11 sports. Included in that figure are 6,500 special education student-athletes who have Special Olympics in the classroom through our Schools Partnership Program. Special Olympics requires the extraordinary support and time of 17,143 volunteers and volunteer coaches. Financial support comes almost exclusively from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations
