Special Olympics BC programs change lives and bring people together. Join the fun – be a part of our provincial community of athletes and fans.

A unique non-profit sports organization, Special Olympics BC is part of a global movement with the power to change the world. It also provides a powerful and life-changing personal journey for all who participate.

Our mission is to offer year-round sports training and competitive opportunities that help adults and children with intellectual disabilities enrich their lives and experience the joy of achievement, acceptance, and friendship.

More than 4,300 vital volunteers are working across the province to make the Special Olympics BC programs happen for our more than 5,200 athletes. And none of the fun, games, and life-changing experiences would be possible without the support of our donors.

Join Special Olympics BC as a participant, volunteer, or donor, and share in the joy.
