This is such a great organization! Special Olympics provides year around sports training and athletic competition in olympic type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities over the age of 8 year old. There are so many different types of indoor or outdoor sports that they can compete in too. What a joy and accomplishment for these children to succeed and win when their lives can be do difficult and complicated.  Special Olympics

The Special Olympics is such an amazing organization. They really help empower and strength those with special needs. I think this is a great organization to volunteer with, donate money to or just overall support. You can go online to find ways to volunteer or donate money.

I have volunteered with this amazing organization for the last 3 years of high school. It is an amazing experience to help children in need, who may not have the opportunity or support at home. It is an eye opening experience.

When I was very young I volunteered to help out with some of the games for Special Olympics. It was a huge learning experience and very rewarding. I made lots of friends and gained a lot of confidence in my ability to help others.
