Special Olympics

What is Special Olympics?
Special Olympics is an international program of year-round sports training and athletic competition for more than one million children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics Oath
Let me win.  But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.

Our mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities by giving 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.

Our goal is for all persons with intellectual disabilities to have the chance to become useful and productive citizens who are accepted and respected in their communities.
