Special Olympics

Special Olympics is an international nonprofit organisation dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition.

Special Olympics offer children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round training and competition in 30 Olympic-type summer and winter sports. Special Olympics currently serve 2.5 million people with intellectual disabilities in more than 200 programmes in over 180 countries.

Special Olympics sharpened the focus on its mission as not just “nice”, but critical, not just a sports organisation for people with intellectual disabilities, but also an effective catalyst for social change.
