SOBC Champions Network

Special Olympics BC Champions Network members generously lend their time and talents to support Special Olympics athletes and our shared mission.

They are inspirational role models who share a belief in the power of sport to break down barriers and foster a world of inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities. They spread the word about Special Olympics BC’s life-changing sports, health, youth, and education programs. We are so grateful for their advocacy and inspiring example!
