The Special Olympics are a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities through the power of sport. When the focus is switched to ability instead of disability the possibilities are endless. Sports have the transformative power to harness strength, instill confidence, create a sense of involvement and community, push individuals to break through mental and physical barriers, and improve health. Team USA is just 1 of 169 countries that participate in the Special Olympics, but they share a common mission:
"Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Our athletes find joy, confidence and fulfillment -- on the playing field and in life. They also inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential... Special Olympics works to spread 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."
