Virginia

Little by little, the world changes. For Special Olympics Virginia, sport is the way we work that change, but the real power lies within the Special Olympics experience and all the people it touches.
Champions Together builds inclusive school communities by engaging students with and without disabilities in unified sports.

It’s at the local level--right here--where interested volunteers meet the athletes. That’s where the perceptions start to change and where the miracle of transformation takes place. 

Special Olympics Virginia provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Those activities give them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship.
