Special Olympics Virginia is a year-round program of sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. We serve more than 10,000 athletes through seven regional offices and 29 area programs. We are one of 52 U.S. programs, and part of a global movement that serves three million athletes in more than 180 counties.
Thanks to a statewide volunteer network of more than 20,000 and the support of generous partners throughout Virginia, athletes pay nothing to participate. And with nearly 2,000 events annually, including seven state-level competitions, we invite everyone to join us in our mission to open hearts and change minds about people with intellectual disabilities.
