  • Special Olympics
    By: Chelsea Moses
  • Mission and Values
    Our mission is to empower individuals with intellectual disabilities by becoming physically fit, productive, and respected members of society through sports training and competition.
    Our vision is to provide sports and training programs for any individual with disabilities who choose to participate, therefore improving their lives and the lives of everyone they touch.
  • Personal Connection
    I have a sister with disabilities and I understand how difficult it is for the person with the disability and I also know how hard it is for the family.
    I want be a special education teacher and work with children who have special needs.
    I believe that the special Olympics is a great way for special needs children to experience joy and to demonstrate courage while interacting with other special Olympic athletes and the people in their community.
  • Specific Programs
    We offer year around sports training and athletic competition in Olympic-type sports to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
    Special Olympic athletes also have the opportunity to participate in unified sports competition. This is a program that combines athletes with intellectual disabilities and athletes without and puts them on a team to train and compete with each other.
    We currently offeran eclectic of sports including:
    Aquatics
    Athletics (Track and Field)
    Basketball
    Golf
    Gymnastics

    We have empowered through sport and have brought education and understanding to help change attitudes
    We have brought happiness, friendship, support, self- esteem building, and skills building to the athletes and various people in the community
  • Specific Need in the Community
    There are a lot of people in our community with special needs and intellectual disabilities
    The special Olympics has all types of people including different race, culture, age, gender and background yet they all come together to celebrate what they have in common and to help those in need
    Many of these people live lives of isolation and are socially excluded from full participation in schools or society

    The foundation identifies andcomprehends how the person with the disability feels and how the family feels so they can understand and provide support
