Special Olympics Builds Healthy and Inclusive Communities
We continuously work to strengthen the training and competitive experience of each Special Olympics athlete by promoting inclusive and healthy communities that create an environment of dignity and support the athlete’s health, fitness, and quality of life.
We believe people with intellectual disabilities deserve full access to quality healthcare.
We are creating a culture of inclusion and acceptance that will dramatically impact the health of our athletes and others intellectual disabilities.
Special Olympics New York athletes participate in more than 200 competitions at local, regional, super regional, state, national and world levels. Competitions provide athletes with meaningful opportunities to test their sports skills and measure progress. They also provide an environment in which athletes are challenged and their achievements celebrated.Individuals with profound disabilities may participate in the Special Olympics Motor Activities Training Program (MATP), which emphasizes training and participation rather than competition.
