Special Olympics is a global organization that involves people that support and accept people regardless of their ability or disability. Special Olympics promotes inclusion and community opportunities to make the world a place with more opportunities to participate in sporting events. This is accomplished by providing year-round sports training and competition in various sports that are Olympic-type sports events.
Through sports, Special Olympics provides people with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to realize their capabilities, strengths, skills, and success. Participation in Special Olympics builds confidence and changes lives through the power of sports and competition. Here in Florida, Special Olympics services over 44,400 athletes and unified partners with the help of over 31,000 dedicated coaches and volunteers.
The Disabled Services Division supports Special Olympics by sponsorships and reserving city facilities for their practices and events.
