Changing lives through the power of sport
Too often, people with intellectual disabilities are forgotten and left behind by our society, and the pandemic has intensified their isolation. The 2021 Newmont Invitational Golf Tournament will be your opportunity to make a critical difference in the lives of athletes who rely on Special Olympics for sport, health, skill building, and most of all, friendships.
Throughout its history, the Newmont Invitational has been known for its premium golf experience and its power to make a difference for Special Olympics BC’s inspiring athletes and empowering programs.
“When I was growing up, I was bullied. I felt like I didn’t know how to fit in, and like nobody believed that I could succeed. Special Olympics helped me not give up, and go for my best,” SOBC – Surrey athlete Susan Wang said at the 2019 Newmont Invitational. “Thank you so much for supporting Special Olympics and helping athletes like me believe we can succeed!”
We are incredibly grateful to the tournament’s participants, sponsors, and other supporters for helping us create life-changing opportunities for more than 5,200 SOBC athletes across the province!
