Thank You for Building an Inclusive World
All month, Special Olympics is celebrating Champions of Inclusion—leaders who are building a more just and joyful world for all! It’s the perfect time for our athlete leaders to send a message to our Global Ambassadors and Champion Ambassadors, who work tirelessly year-round to champion respect for people of all abilities. We appreciate you!
