About Special Olympics BC
Special Olympics BC is one of the world’s most powerful and effective movements that forever changes the way people with an intellectual disability are perceived and treated. Through the transformative power and joy of sport, Special Olympics instill confidence, self-esteem and other life skills through positive sport experiences. Special Olympics change attitudes and create a more inclusive society.
The Special Olympics BC Summer Games are our province’s biggest showcase of the abilities of our athletes, and a critical part of our mission to change the game for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
