WHY NOT MAKE IT OFFICIAL…
Volunteer, Support, Coach or Compete
Sponsor an Athlete
When you Sponsor an Athlete, you transform a life. Share the Joy of Victory and the Promise of Acceptance. Your contribution will help an athlete gain confidence, boost self‐esteem and build lasting friendships.
Special Olympics Pennsylvania has kicked off a “Be a Fan” Today! Campaign geared toward the current and new generation of volunteers, coaches, athletes and financial supporters. Through the creation of the new www.BeaFanToday.org website, local programs can raise money in support of its athletes through the “Sponsor an Athlete” tab. This promotion can benefit our athletes with 100% of the proceeds going straight to the local program. Visit www.BeaFanToday.org and click on “Sponsor an Athlete.”
Special Olympics Pennsylvania offers a number of ways for individuals to be a fan and make a difference for our athletes. There are thousands of athletes waiting for coaches, sponsors and volunteers like you.
Whether you're a coach, official, committee member or assistant at a competition, you'll experience the way sports should be. Special Olympics athletes are excited to play, respectful of players and officials, and devoted to their coaches. With your time, energy and enthusiasm, you can help our athletes be great.
You can get involved by volunteering just a few hours of your time at a specific event, or for several weeks during a season as a coach. Or you can help with local and community program administration. Volunteering for Special Olympics can create lifelong friendships and rewards of immeasurable value.
