As we enter the holiday season, this is an excellent time for those of us at Special Olympics Texas to reflect on what makes us thankful.

Recently, we polled Special Olympics athletes, families, coaches and volunteers to ask them what about Special Olympics Texas makes them thankful. Here are only a few of the responses:

  • Athlete: “I’m thankful for my three decades with SOTX as an athlete and my (team) family and fellow athletes from across the state and family and friends.”
  • Coach: “The perseverance of the athletes.”
  • Volunteer: “Seeing their accomplishments, no matter how big or small, and being told ‘I love you this much’—with their arms stretched out as far as they can go.”
  • Family member: “I am so glad there are people who totally understand my brother and let him have a good time while being healthy. SOTX is a big part of his life.”

SOTX is thankful to you, our supporters. Your generous support makes it possible for our athletes to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy.  Donate now.

Thank you.

At SOTX, there is a place for everyone, from athlete to coach, volunteer to sponsor, and more.  Get involved.
