The Special Olympics mission remains as vital today as it did when the movement was founded 50 years ago in 1968. We provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.


More About Us

Our program, however, is about more than just sports. We envision a world in which people with intellectual disabilities lead healthy, vibrant lives grounded in ongoing sports and physical activity, sound nutrition and a deeply held conviction to improve, compete, achieve and demonstrate their personal best to themselves and their community.

No longer is it enough to provide a place for people of all abilities to come together through sport. It is time to demand uncompromising inclusion- in school, employment, healthcare, social activities and yes, sports, too. For our uprising to succeed, we need more rebels, heroes, and fighters like you.
