It’s National Volunteer Week! Thank you to all our incredible volunteers!

It’s ‪#‎NationalVolunteerWeek‬!!! We are SO LUCKY to have such a dedicated, committed and passionate group of volunteers (almost 20,000 to be exact!). They are the reason Special Olympics can provide sport opportunities to individuals with an intellectual disability across the country. We are so grateful for your time, commitment and energy day-in and day-out. THANK YOU to ALL of our INCREDIBLE volunteers!! This week we salute you for all you do! Throughout the week we’ll be profiling some stories of different volunteer areas within the movement and some awesome initiatives and stories from our chapters! ‪#‎NVW2016‬
