eoy-social2.gifAt Special Olympics, we’ve seen first hand what the power of sport can do for an athlete. It really is life changing. We’ve watched people score their first goal, run across the finish line, and nail a perfect routine. The smile on their face is indescribable.

These are just a few of the stories Special Olympics helps creates. But we can only do it with your help. And for the rest of this year, your gift will be TRIPLE matched, so now you can help three times as many athletes find the joy of sports!
