Special Olympics Illinois

The focus in Special Olympics is on what athletes can do. Like everyone, Special Olympics athletes like to win, but more importantly - they strive to do their best. The sportsmanship that is demonstrated on the court, in the field, or on the track serves as an inspiration to all.


Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with mental retardation and closely related developmental disabilities by giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.


"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."
