Download Program Fact Sheet

Special Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy, and benefit from participation in individual and team sports. These must be adapted only as necessary to meet the needs of those with mental and physical limitations.

Special Olympics believe that consistent training is indispensable to the development of an individual’s sports skills. In addition, competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these skills, measuring progress, and providing incentives for personal growth.

    Join us on Sunday, September 17 as we gather to run and walk in celebration of the Samuelson Children's Hospital. Our pediatric team is second to none. Form a team or participate as an individual! The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai supports the very heart of the family-centered care philosophy. From pediatric medicine to expert care in specialties such as cancer, neurologic disorders, bowel disease and diabetes, the Samuelson Children's Hospital delivers individualized care focused on the family and patient. The family works alongside the clinical team to ensure the best outcomes from their sick child. 16 sub-specialties are practiced by Baltimore's top doctors, nurses and clinical staff who care for our youngest and most fragile patients. All proceeds from Race for Our Kids benefit the Samuelson Children's Hospital. In 2016, the proceeds benefited patient emergency financial assistance, water cooler for mothers whose babies are in the NICU, patient transportation, "face lifts" for the NICU pink and blue rooms, meal vouchers for parents when their children are in the hospital for lengthy stays, and so much more.
