Key Events

A reason to celebrate

Throughout the year, we host several marquee events in order to raise both awareness and financial support for our movement. These events have become nationally recognized and we look forward to hosting each one of them as a chance to celebrate both the past and the future of Special Olympics in Canada.

Give a Toonie. Share a Dream.

The annual campaign put on by Staples stores across the country.
This year’s  campaign will begin on May 3rd and finish May 25th

Limitless: The Special Olympics Festival Gala

Highly anticipated and quite simply, unforgettable. This annual Toronto tradition is one of the city’s most popular, giving sports fans the chance to support an amazing cause, while mingling with some of our city’s, if not our country’s, sport heroes and legends. Now in it’s 32nd year, this year’s theme will celebrate the Limitless possibility of Special Olympics athletes.
