Special Olympics

The “What We Do” section on the Special Olympics website explains the mission statement of the organization as well as highlights events and how to get involved. “Dignity, acceptance, and a chance to reach one’s potential – these are human rights worth promoting for everyone. Since 1968, Special Olympics has been bringing one message to the world: people with intellectual disabilities can and will succeed if given the opportunity.”
