The Mission of Special Olympics

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

The Vision of Special Olympics

Special Olympics is an unprecedented global movement which, through quality sports training and competition, improves the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and, in turn, the lives of everyone they touch.
  • Special Olympics empowers people with intellectual disabilities to realize their full potential and develop their skills through year-round sports training and competition.
  • As a result, Special Olympics athletes become fulfilled and productive members of their families and the communities in which they live.
  • Special Olympics is an experience that is energizing, healthy, skillful, welcoming and joyful.

To get involved, contact us at the Special Olympics Idaho offices.
