Through sport, Special Olympics is building communities of acceptance and inclusion for all people. Join us at specialolympics.org!
|Mission||Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olymipc-type sports for children and adults 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.|
***FUNDRAISING ON FACEBOOK*** First off, thank you for thinking of raising money for Special Olympics! Please note that when you start a fundraiser through our page that the money raised through the fundraiser will be allocated into Special Olympics' general funds at our headquarters, from which the funds are used in a variety of ways toward our mission. If you would like to donate specifically to a local Program please find that Program's Facebook page to create your fundraiser.
Comments that are clearly spam, such as the repeated use of the R-word over and over again will be reported to Facebook as an attack on an individual or group as these comments are clearly doing nothing but trying to denigrate people with disabilities. These comments will also be removed from the page, and the commenter banned from the page, because they do not contribute to the conversation, or help it move forward in a productive manner, but only serve to hurt people with disabilities and those that love them.
This page and its fans are happy to engage those of you who disagree with our stance in a productive conversation and will not remove comments just because you disagree with us. But we do reserve the right to remove clearly hateful comments, profanity laced comments, or comments that do not serve to move the conversation forward in any way.
