ABOUT SPECIAL OLYMPICS INDIANA
At the core, Special Olympics is a sports organization that uses the power of sport as a catalyst for social change. Through sport, we challenge society. By highlighting how the needs of people with intellectual disabilities (ID) are not being met, we expose inequity and exclusion. By drawing attention to the gifts of people with ID, we break down misperceptions and tackle negative attitudes.
The vision of Special Olympics Indiana is that sport will open hearts and minds towards people with ID and create inclusive communities across the state and throughout the world.
