Special Olympics is a global organization that serves athletes with intellectual disabilities working with hundreds of thousands of volunteers and coaches each year. Since the establishment of Special Olympics in 1968, the number of people with and without intellectual disabilities who are involved with the organization has been growing, but the unmet need to reach more people with intellectual disabilities is staggering.
The Power of Sport.  For every Special Olympics athlete, there are many more waiting for their chance.

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 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.

    Friendly Multi-Sport Competition of Special Olympics "BoHeMSA"

    mar. avr. 4 - ven. avr. 07, 2017
     

    The organizer of the entire competition is the Bosnian and Herzegovinian Medical Students’ Association "BoHeMSA" Local Committee Tuzla, as part of the IFMSA network, together in cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine Tuzla and the University of Tuzla. In order to grow into a society which practices, reaches and implements policies where every individual has equal rights and opportunities regardless of their diversity, integration of disabled people into such society is emerging as one of the solutions to enable its growth. Social inclusion does not imply equalization of all people, but respecting the differences of each individual. Developing tolerance allows expansion of perspective, gaining experiences and developing of the human personality. Guided by our motto "DO NOT CALL ME SPECIAL! DIFFERENT DOES NOT MEAN IMPOSSIBLE!“ we use sport as one of the ways in which children and young people with disabilities can be active while developing their talents and capabilities, and by doing so successfully engage into everyday activities. To achieve this mission, we also got help from our partners which include Faculty for physical education and sport in Tuzla and Center for sport University of Tuzla. The competition will be organized in four sports: athletics, swimming, basketball and football. Each competition will be organized in three divisions depending on the degree disabilities. Athletics and swimming, will be organized in the men's and women's categories.
