Special Olympics spreads compassion and acceptance in a way that can unite the world. Our goal is to awaken everyone — and every community — to each person’s common humanity. Understanding brings acceptance; acceptance brings peace. This vision of inclusion starts at the local level and expands worldwide.
The Local Hero Award was created to celebrate remarkable individuals --inside and outside -- of our organization whose actions inspire a more accepting and inclusive world for people with intellectual disabilities.
Congratulations to our heroes making a difference in our communities!
