About

In 1968, Eunice Kennedy Shriver knew in her heart that giving people with disabilities the chance to participate in sport could transform their feelings about themselves—building confidence, restoring pride, and opening a door to a more hopeful future. Her fledgling idea has grown into the Special Olympics movement that has had a powerful transformative impact on societies and lives around the globe. And the athletes living out her dream have come to play a revolutionary role in changing the way the world sees people with disabilities. The Special Olympics mission remains as vital today as it did when the movement was founded in 1968. We strive to create a better world by fostering the acceptance and inclusion of all people. Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Our athletes find joy, confidence and fulfillment -- on the playing field and in life. They also inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential. The transformative power of sports to instill confidence, improve health, and inspire a sense of competition is at the core of what Special Olympics does. For more than 30 years, Special Olympics BC has improved the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities and, in turn, the lives of everyone they’ve touched.
