Special Olympics Ontario is an organization whose impact on the lives of those with intellectual disabilities is unparalleled. Through active participation in sport, Special Olympics athletes develop confidence in their abilities, which carries through to all aspects of their lives. They learn to make and maintain meaningful relationships, as they become friends with other athletes, coaches, and families. All who have been involved with supporting Special Olympics have witnessed the joy and spirit of these amazing athletes.
