Help Our Athletes Soar

Our athletes and their coaches cover many miles to participate in events. If you have more airline miles than you’ll ever use or that will be expiring before you can take advantage of them, donate them now and help us ensure the joy of Special Olympics competition is available to all who want to participate.

About the Program

There is no fee to participate in Special Olympics. Yet the every increasing cost of travel is a burden that many programs face that affects their ability to provide more services, reach more athletes, and train more coaches. Your mileage donation will be used to help defray travel costs directly related to the athletes, coaches and staff of Special Olympics and put their money directly into services for the program.

Please consider donating them to Special Olympics through our association with the mileage donation programs of several leading airlines.

United Airlines®
Since 1996, more than 350 million miles have been donated to the United Mileage Plus® Charity Miles Program to meet the urgent travel needs of selected nonprofits across the United States. Through this program, members can donate a minimum of 1,000 miles to Special Olympics. To do so, please call United Mileage Plus Customer Service at +1 (800) 421-4655.
