Special Olympics Northern California (SONC) transforms the lives of nearly 26,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities every year. Through athletic opportunities, coupled with quality support programs and advocacy efforts, the focus shifts to what our athletes CAN do, not what they can’t. As a result, attention to disabilities fades away, and our athletes discover new strengths, abilities, skills, and success that translates on the playing field and in everyday life.
Due to the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations, SONC is able to offer these life-changing opportunities free-of-cost to athletes and their families.
