Special Olympics Texas is a movement dedicated to providing people with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to achieve. Special Olympics is not just about athletic competitions. The movement is also about working together with others, gaining self-confidence and learning additional skills that make it possible for our athletes to become significant and productive citizens of our communities. Special Olympics really is a growing movement that creates a lasting and positive imprint across virtually every segment of our society and in the hearts of everyone it touches.

As a donor, you can see your gift in action through diverse, year-round volunteer opportunities. Since the Special Olympics program is available in every community, your donation benefits local athletes. And ultimately, your generosity can provide a life-changing experience for individuals with intellectual disabilities well into the future.
