Special Olympics provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and other health-related programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities. The power and joy of sport shifts the focus to what Special Olympics athletes can do, not what they can’t. Attention to disabilities fades away, and we see talents and abilities, and applaud them for all that they can do.
