Special Olympics transforms lives through the joy of sport, every day, everywhere. They are the world’s largest sports organization: with nearly 5 million athletes in more than 170 countries — 16,900 of them here in Missouri. They are also a global social movement. With initiatives to activate youth, engage kids and adults with intellectual disabilities, build communities, and improve the health of our athletes – they’re changing the game for people young and old and asking you to be a part of it all.
For 50 years, Special Olympics has been spreading the message: people with intellectual disabilities can – and will – succeed when given the chance.
Special Olympics Missouri Summer Games are happening June 5 at Hickman High School. Special Olympics is looking for volunteers to help with the event.
