Jason Horton

Jason competes in flag football, softball, soccer and is a member of the Colorado Rapids Special Olympics Unified Team. He has fought cancer three times – and lost the use of an eye, a leg and his now deaf.

During the first two rounds of cancer treatment, Jason lost both of his parents, also from cancer. Due to a recent round of cancer treatment (from cancer in his chest), Jason could not finish the season last year with the Colorado Rapids Unified Team.

With the continued support of his Special Olympics family, Jason is doing great and is back on the field this season with the Colorado Rapids Unified Team!

About Me:

Special Olympics is a global movement that unleashes the human spirit through the transformative power and joy of sports, every day around the world. We empower people with intellectual disabilities to become accepted and valued members of their communities, which leads to a more respectful and inclusive society for all.
