Although Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day has traditionally been held in September, we will begin celebrating it on July 20 each year, to help mark the anniversary of the first-ever Special Olympics Games in 1968.

Please help us spread the word about Mrs. Shriver and the remarkable movement she unleashed.
