“Globally, people with intellectual differences cannot boast a great success story around the world. Most live in poverty. Most are denied education. Most are unemployed. Most are lonely and shunned. If they were a nation, they would be 200 million people and the world’s poorest. Their revolution still awaits.”

- Tim Shriver
Special Olympics Chairman

In Virginia, more than 140,000 adults and children have intellectual disabilities. With support from fans like you, we can help transform more lives through the joy of sport.

Through work in sports, life skills, health, education, and community building, Special Olympics is addressing inactivity, injustice, intolerance and social isolation by encouraging and empowering people with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics Virginia meets the BBB Wise Giving Alliance's Standards for Charity Accountability.
