Special Olympics Alberta is committed to enriching the lives of Albertans with an intellectual disability through sport.
There are over 2.5 million people with intellectual disabilities in Alberta. Our goal is to reach out to every one of them – and their families as well. Special Olympics does this through a wide range of training, competitions, health screenings and fundraising events. We also create opportunities for families, community members, local leaders, businesses, law enforcement, celebrities, dignitaries and others to band together to change attitudes and support athletes.
Our vision is that sport will open hearts and minds towards people with intellectual disabilities and create inclusive communities all over the world. Special Olympics will strive for this vision by providing better quality sport opportunities supported through health initiatives. At the same time, we will step up efforts to use our work to tell the world about the talents and abilities of people with ID.
