What is The Reach Report?

The 2013 Special Olympics Reach Report is our annual review of key metrics compiled across our Movement to reflect the scale and status of our sports, education, health and community-building programs.

We've drawn on data from our annual census, health database, sport surveys and other new data sources. This report shows the profound impact of our work and is a progress report on our goals.

The report shows continuing growth in the Special Olympics movement in participating athletes, competitions, volunteers and revenues.

In 2013, Special Olympics served 4,427,447 athletes worldwide, an increase of more than 221,817 athletes from 2012.

In the past year, the global Movement achieved a 5 percent athlete growth rate, and all seven of our world Regions reported positive athlete growth.

Our athletes are involved in an incredible number of competitions, from local team games up to country-level, regional and world competitions. There were 81,129 competitions worldwide in 2013, which averages out to an amazing 9 competitions per hour.

The report is full of interesting facts and information. If you are not already familiar with our international efforts, prepare to be amazed.
