Special Olympics Hillsborough County has over 1,000 athletes, 200 coaches, and 600 volunteers who currently participate in our various programs. As a not-for-profit organization, we rely heavily on the contributions and support of our local businesses to be able to provide our athletes with the caliber of programs that they deserve, while maintaining our unique principal that our programs are 100% free for athletes to participate.
Special Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy, and benefit from participation in individual and team sports. These must be adapted only as necessary to meet the needs of those with mental and physical limitations.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for persons eight years of age and older with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
We would like to invite you or your organization to take an active role in supporting our local programs.
