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

The program, however, is about more than just sports. Through work in health, education, community building, and sports, Special Olympics addresses inactivity, injustice, intolerance, and social isolation by encouraging and empowering people with intellectual disabilities. We give our participants skills they can use at home, in school, and at work.

Special Olympics PA –  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 PA –  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 PA – 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.
