Special Olympics Florida
More than 500 athletes and Unified partners competed in 19 sports at the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games!
Making a difference in Florida
It takes all of us to create a world of inclusion — athletes, volunteers, families, sponsors, coaches, the general public — who are willing to open our minds and hearts and provide new opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.
Number of lives changed? Every one of them!
Together We Celebrate!
Over the last 50 years, we have improved the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and created communities of inclusion and acceptance. Throughout 2022, we will celebrate the people who have made the mission of Special Olympics possible in Florida.
Join the Inclusion Revolution
It's a celebration that culminates with a series of race events across Florida via running, swimming, cycling, or paddling. The time is now to help us build a world of inclusion and acceptance.
