Ways to Help Special Olympics Ventura County
Special Olympics Ventura County depends on the generosity of the local community to help support our mission--to bring sports training and competition to persons with intellectual disabilities. There are many ways that you can help ensure that our more than 700 Ventura County athletes receive the quality sports training and competition that they deserve -- all at no cost to them or their families.
Sponsor an Athlete
A recent Yale University study found that Special Olympics athletes benefit from:
Improved physical fitness and sports skills
Enhanced self-confidence and social competency
Greater readiness for employment
Better preparation for independent living
Increased ability to make personal decisions, and
Improved friendships and family relationships.
Special Olympics participation is provided free of charge. These programs come at a cost, however. Please help us continue to provide quality sports training and competition opportunities by sponsoring an athlete for a sports season - or better yet, for the entire year!
