Mission Statement

Special Olympics Minnesota provides a year-round program of sports training and competition for people with mental disabilities that contributes to lifelong physical fitness, personal growth and achievement.

Description

Our program contributes to the physical, social and psychological development of people with mental disabilities. Through successful experiences in sports, the Special Olympics athlete gains confidence and builds a positive self-image associated with success which carries over into the classroom, the home, the job and the community. Involvement in Special Olympics also strengthens the family -- by initiating a richer appreciation of talents and greater support among the Special Olympics athlete, siblings and parents -- and unites the community in understanding the full potential of people with mental disabilities to become useful and productive citizens.
