Sports are universal, connecting individuals regardless of their race, background, nationality, or intellectual ability. The Special Olympics embodies this universality, demonstrating that human greatness is defined by much more than the limitations of the body. It gives families and communities a chance to come together; provides athletes with the opportunity to feel pride and courage for their accomplishments, and creates an environment where people can change their attitudes about people with intellectual disabilities.

Twice a year, Special Olympics Greenville athletes and volunteers attend state level competitions which are the culmination of 8 week practice seasons for bowling, flag football, golf, soccer, swimming, softball, powerlifting, and track and field. Attending these competitions requires transportation via charter buses which costs $8,000 each year. Please consider donating today to provide athletes with the opportunity to experience the many benefits of sports training and athletic competition in an inclusive environment.
