Learn More About Our Four Legacy Pillars

Inclusion Through Sport – The 2026 USA Games:
The 2026 Special Olympics USA Games—scheduled for June 20-26, 2026 across Minnesota’s Twin Cities—is a celebration of inclusivity, changing perceptions and the ability of the human spirit rising above limitations. The USA Games will be one of the biggest U.S. sporting events of the year, drawing tens of thousands of fans to celebrate the ability of 4,000 incredible athletes from all 50 states as they compete in approximately 19 Olympic-type team and individual sports.

Healthier Athletes:
“Healthy Athletes” is a Special Olympics program focused on addressing challenges that persons with ID face daily with access to health services. Free health screenings including vision, dental, hearing, mental health, nutrition, and fitness are provided to athletes during the Games – And your donation will help us to continue these services within the state of Minnesota.

Inclusive Workplaces:
We want to see the inclusivity of sport move to the workforce, empowering athletes to use their unique talents and strengths to align with their aspirations and needs, impacting how employers hire and employ those with ID. Your donation will help us develop sustainable activities that will reset the trajectory of inclusive employment.

Youth Initiatives:
Creating opportunities for youth with and without intellectual disabilities to become agents of change within their school, community, and state is a top priority. We support meaningful involvement that provides an important foundation for young students to be offered leadership roles through such major initiatives as Unified Champion Schools.
