Think of other’s as havening a disability as a gift from God to show other’s they can do something special.

Try something new at least once

I firmly believe Special Olympics is more than just a program of sports, training and competition; it's a strong statement of optimism about human life.
William J. Clinton, former president of the United States of America

If people would believe in us like Special Olympics and see what we can do, they would be amazed. My ambition in life is to turn ‘no’ into ‘yes.’ If someone says I can’t do something, I want to prove I can.
Suzanne O’Moore, Special Olympics Australia athlete
It is the Special Olympics athletes’ ability to deliver and exceed everyone’s expectations, including my own that impresses me the most.
Peter Lynch, Vice Chairman, Fidelity Management and Research Company

"Share our similarities, celebrate our differences."

Special Olympics Athlete Oath

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

Miley Cyrus - The Climb: Hannah Montana The Movie

The Climb by Miley Cyrus should be Special Olympics theme song. To me it means, for everything that comes your way; you will always have another challenge. You can find out your meaning for yourself.

A World of Neglect

A World of Neglect
People with intellectual disabilities are every society's most neglected population. Nearly 200 million people, or three percent of the world's population, have an intellectual disability, making it the largest disability population in the world.

Driven to Win

I was driven to win
Because of who I am
Not because of what I look like
Not because I learn slower
Not because I’m handicapped
But, because I try to do my best
At whatever I do ever day

I am driven to win
To try and win that gold medal
At the State Games
To show others
That anything is possible
All you got to do is try
And you will achieve
What none other could

I am driven to win
Because of what
God made me to be
And no one can stop me
From doing what
God made me to do

I was driven to win
Because we all are
Miracles from God
Especially those that are different
To show others
What can be achieved
When kids are in Special Olympics
