Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s Philadelphia program provides year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults in Philadelphia with intellectual disabilities.

The program, however, is about more than just sports. Through work in health, education, community building and sports, Special Olympics is addressing inactivity, injustice, intolerance and social isolation by encouraging and empowering people with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics Philadelphia envisions a world where people with intellectual disabilities lead healthy, vibrant lives grounded in ongoing sports and physical activities, sound nutrition and a deeply held commitment to improve, compete, achieve and demonstrate their personal bests to themselves and their communities. 

Special Olympics Philadelphia envisions a world where people with intellectual disabilities – and their families — know the best ways to optimize their health and well-being. We want to make sure that accessible information, resources, systems and policies exist at the individual, community, national and global levels that support them in realizing healthy and productive lives.

Special Olympics Philadelphia  envisions a world in which people with intellectual disabilities are leaders in engendering and sustaining acceptance and respect within schools and communities. We do this through Special Olympics’ inclusive sports, fitness and youth activation programs.
