About Us - "Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt." S.O. Motto
Through the power of sports, people with disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Our athletes find joy, confidence and fulfillment -- on the playing field and in life. They also inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.
Through sports, we showcase the skills and dignity of our athletes. We also bring together communities to see and take part in the transformative power of sports. We know the odds our athletes must overcome and the barriers they face every single day. We see this at training events and competitions as our athletes push to beat their personal best -- and exceed them. Their stories and successes inspire us all.
We believe in a world where there are millions of different abilities but not disabilities. And we're spreading this message everywhere - at big Special Olympics events and small ones.
Special Olympics is the largest sports organization for people with disabilities: with more than 4.5 million athletes in 170 countries -- and millions more volunteers and supporters. We are also a global social movement.
