Special Olympics promotes athleticism and healthy competition
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for adults with developmental disabilities. Special Olympics gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, the opportunity to 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.
