Transformative Education

Special Olympics provides a platform through sports to help change the attitudes and perceptions of youth towards peers with intellectual disabilities through programs such as Unified Sports, Project Unify, and the R- Word Campaign. Get involved as an Educator, School or Partner.

Sustaining Athlete Health

Though Sports is at our core, Special Olympics is the leading advocate for establishing better health programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our Healthy Athletes programs provide health screenings for eyes, teeth, feet, nutrition, exercise and more. Get involved as a Health Professional.

Community Building & Fundraising

Special Olympics is located in every community. Since all programming is provided for free, support from the community is imperative. There are many ways to get involved from local fundraising, to facility usage and product donation. The Law Enforcement Torch Run program is a partnership with public safety agencies. Have some fun and join our fundraising efforts by Plunging, Rappelling or Running.
