Thank You!

Special Olympics would not exist today – and could not have been created – without the time, energy, commitment, and enthusiasm of people just like you, thousands of individuals who choose to take a little time from busy schedules to make the world a better place. Huge thanks to you and to the Special Olympics BC volunteers and coaches across the province who make our programs possible and make a difference!
