You know it when you see it – that determined look, that extra mile or lap, that high-five jump, that pat on the back, that enormous smile. It's the power of sports. For people with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics is often the only place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities, develop belief in themselves, and feel like champions. But for every inspiring Special Olympics athlete, there are many more waiting for their chance to shine. Donate today and help us reach out to one more person who wants to participate.
