Special Olympics offers many ways to take part. The first step to getting involved—whether you want to be an athlete, Unified partner, coach, or volunteer—is to connect with your local program for more details.
The heart of our organization is our athletes, and we would not exist today without the individuals and organizations who help support them throughout the year. From volunteers and Unified Champion Schools, to our Law Enforcement Torch Run community that raises thousands of dollars to support our mission, we encourage you to get involved!
