All of the athlete's expenses are paid for through your generousity.

For many of the athletes, Special Olympics is their only hope – their only chance to participate in sport, to experience joy, to receive basic health care and to be part of their communities. Through Special Olympics, their lives change radically. They discover inner strength and capabilities that change their minds about their own self-worth, and the minds of everyone around them.

For 40 years Arizona communities have helped Special Olympic athletes realize their dreams through sports training and competition. Today, that dream extends to over 16,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the state. These are the real results for our competitors: as their dreams are realized, lives are changed through training and competition, but more importantly self-confidence is built, social competency is gained and self-esteem soars.

Special Olympics Arizona athletes are never charged for training or competition; all fees and expenses are fully covered through generous financial support from donors, sponsors and benefactors - people like you. Through your support the Special Olympics Arizona athlete is inspired to greatness. Donate to Special Olympics Arizona, and start changing lives today.
