"Globally, people with intellectual differences cannot boast a great success story around the world. Most live in poverty. Most are denied education. Most are unemployed. Most are lonely and shunned. If they were a nation, they would be 200 million people and the world’s poorest. Their revolution still awaits."
– Tim Shriver, Special Olympics Chairman
Make a gift. Change a life.
Everyone deserves a chance at a happy and purposeful life. Yet people with intellectual disabilities face doubt, barriers and low expectations. For many, Special Olympics is the only place where they find an opportunity to participate in their communities, develop belief in themselves and feel like champions.
For every inspiring Special Olympics athlete in Virginia, there are 6 more people waiting for their chance - and so many more around the world. Help us reach out to one more person who wants to participate in Special Olympics.
