Light Up the World for Special Olympics!

Australian Landmarks Light Up Red for the Special Olympics 50th Anniversary

Special Olympics is calling on Europe Eurasia to light up red in a global show of inclusion this July. Special Olympic celebrates the 50 years of our movement this summer. To mark this major milestone, Special Olympics is asking everyone to Light Up for Inclusion! On July 20th, 2018 landmarks, stadia and iconic buildings around the world will turn red in a global act of unity. This exciting event will be global demonstration of tolerance, respect and a celebration of difference. Lighting up red for inclusion will help bring urgency and awareness for the inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities all over the world. David Evangelista, President and Managing Director, Special Olympics Europe Eurasia, is encouraging programmes to get involved: "As one of the largest regions, we are hoping that SOEE programmes answer this call and nominate a landmark and engage a contact to confirm a willingness to take part in the initiative."
