Our vision is for Unified Sports to be recognized globally as an iconic program that promotes and creates social inclusion between individuals with and without intellectual disabilities through sport. It was inspired by a simple principle: playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.
Special Olympics Unified Sports creates unique teammate bonds through sports experiences, just like any other team, and the participants compete in Special Olympics competitions. More than half a million people worldwide take part in Unified Sports, breaking down stereotypes about people with intellectual disabilities in a fun way.
Our opponent is intolerance. As long as we come together on the field of play, we can defeat it.
