46 Years and Counting

On Sunday, July 20th, Special Olympics Louisiana will turn 46 years old!  Back in 1968, at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL, we were founded with 25 other States. As you may know, those were the first Special Olympics International Games.  We had eleven (11) athletes participate in the first Games.  Today, we are home to 13,000 athletes and growing!EKS at 1968 games

Thank you to all of our athletes, volunteers, partners, donors, and sponsors for all that you have done over the years!  Here’s to another 46 years!
