Athlete Hall of Fame

Each year, we recognize an Outstanding Athlete of the Year who has contributed to the success of the program during the previous program year. The Athlete of the Year Award is presented to an athlete who has shown determination, dedication to training and true sportsmanship during his or her participation in Special Olympics Virginia.
