Denmark

Special Olympics Denmark (SODK) was established in 1985 as part of Dansk Handicap Idræts-Forbund (Danish Sports Organisation for Disabled). Since 2001 we have been focused on developing sport for people with learning disabilities using the Special Olympics concepts. We primarily use the Special Olympics concepts to develop local, regional and national tournaments and games and give people with learning disabilities the opportunity to participate in sports events abroad.
The Power of Sport: For every Special Olympics athlete there are any more waiting for their chance.

We offer opportunities to children and adults with a learning disability and are working to expand opportunities to reach further in the years to come. Children and adults with learning disabilities who participate in Special Olympics develop improved physical fitness and motor skills, greater self-confidence and a more positive self-image. They grow mentally, socially and spiritually and, through their activities, exhibit boundless courage and enthusiasm, enjoying the rewards of friendship and ultimately discovering new abilities and talents.
