Reach Your Personal Best!

 “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt”

Our Special Olympics volunteers provide sporting opportunities for all people with an intellectual disability regardless of their skills. While some Special Olympics athletes strive to win medals, others enjoy the chance to get active, have fun, make friends and be part of a family. Our sports programs are delivered within a supportive environment where people with an intellectual disability are accepted and can feel proud. Through the support of Special Olympics we hope to inspire individuals to improve their health, develop self-confidence and bring joy to themselves, their families and their community. You can help us give more people with an intellectual disability a chance to achieve their personal best. Learn more about Special Olympics, be inspired by our athletes or best of all, get involved!
