Special Olympics

Special Olympics provides individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities the opportunity to develop physical fitness, compete as individuals and in teams, grow in their confidence and independence, and build friendships. The Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with disabilities (1.2 million athletes worldwide!)

 Our athletes will compete in Bowling, Basketball, and Track/Field Events.

The Special Olympics Oath "Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt" was spoken by Roman Gladiators as they entered the arena. It is spoken at the Special Olympics opening ceremonies to remind everyone they are part of a brave tradition and if they try their hardest they will achieve their goals!
