Special Olympics Changes Society by Changing Attitudes. When Society misunderstands and underestimates the capabilities of people with Intellectual Disabilities, opportunities are lost. Jobs, friendships, and respect are all lost. It is Special Olympics’ mission to show the world the true nature of people with Intellectual disabilities.
Sean’s life has been positively impacted by Special Olympics with his abilities being showcased on the golf course. Multiple Gold, Silver and Bronze medals hang on his wall with great pride.
Special Olympics transforms lives through the joy of sport, ever day, everywhere. They are the largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities: with more than 4.9 million athletes in 172 countries—and over a million volunteers.
