The Golisano Health Leadership Awards recognize health champions—leaders and organizations—that are making a significant contribution to equal access to health, fitness or wellness for people with intellectual disabilities. The award also promotes awareness for the progress and extraordinary efforts toward fulfilling the goals, values, and mission of Special Olympics Health work. This is the highest Special Olympics honor for health partners.

Local Golisano Health Leadership Awards (yellow pins) are awarded to up to 3 individuals or organizations each year by a Special Olympics Program. Global Golisano Health Leadership Awards (red pin) are awarded at Special Olympics World games and are given to the top individual or organization in each Special Olympics global region.
