THE CASE FOR THE ATHLETE TRAINING CENTER


While Special Olympics Idaho has worked to improve thousands of lives through year-round sports training, athletic competition and health education, the movement is still affecting just a small percentage of people in Idaho with intellectual disabilities.

The Campaign for the Athlete Training Center is much more than just a capital campaign for Special Olympics Idaho headquarters.  The Campaign for the Athlete Training Center reflects the Special Olympics mission and commitment to bettering the lives of those with intellectual disabilities in today’s society.  By bringing together people with and without intellectual disabilities at Special Olympics programs, longstanding myths are dispelled, negative attitudes changed, and new opportunities are created to embrace and celebrate the giftedness of people with intellectual disabilities.

Please help us reach all those who can benefit from participation in our year-round programs. Your willingness to support the Campaign for the Athlete Training Center will give our athletes the chance to make their dreams come true.  Our Athlete Training Center is paramount to our mission:  to give Special Olympic athletes opportunities to participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympic athletes and the community.
