Thank you for your continued support as our athletes get back on the playing field!

Every dollar we raise up to $15,000 will be MATCHED thanks to Kurt Rasmussen and an anonymous donor.

It feels good to be getting back to the sports we love! Nothing compares to the energy of a Special Olympics Minnesota competition, and it’s been great to get a taste of what’s to come as COVID-19 cases decrease and we continue to grow our in-person events.

Because of support from generous donors like you, we have been able to sustain our mission throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in new and creative ways. Over the last year and a half, we have adapted to offer virtual competitions and social opportunities. We will continue to provide various ways to engage with Special Olympics Minnesota at home, as we have realized that virtual events are accessible and a great way to stay connected with our mission beyond our traditional programs.

However, we’re so excited to have our athletes back on the playing field, and we need your continued support to return to more of the sports we love! We have already seen our athletes’ joy as they returned to smaller competitions this past summer and fall, and our in-person Punt, Pass and Kick event in November is sure to be a highlight for many athletes, coaches and volunteers. We're feeling really optimistic about our plans for 2022 and can't wait to get back to our larger events!

As in-person sports return, so will important and necessary health screenings for our athletes. Special Olympics Minnesota has been at the forefront of the inclusive health movement for years because of the support of donors like you. We strive to provide free access to health screenings and education for our athletes in a variety of disciplines, and if there’s anything we’ve learned in the last year and a half, it’s that equitable and inclusive healthcare is more important than ever.

Will you help us expand our in-person competitions and health screenings? A donation of any size would be greatly appreciated.

Slowly but surely, we are getting the Special Olympics Minnesota community back together. We’re so excited to see our athletes back on the playing field and to continue to support the needs of people with intellectual disabilities in Minnesota. Thank you for your support!
