Make a difference for Special Olympics BC

Right now, all in-person Special Olympics BC sport programs and fundraising events are paused, in accordance with health guidance. Special Olympics BC is sport, health, and so much more – we are a community, a family, a source of emotional stability for more than 5,200 athletes throughout the province. Your support is critical to delivering resources and encouragement to athletes who are feeling isolated at home, and it is critical to raising funds that will renew our life-changing sport programs and competitions when it is safe to do so. 

To our inspiring law enforcement friends, and to everyone lacing up for the Special Olympics BC community – THANK YOU!! You are so important to this life-changing movement, now and always.
