2023 is a very special year. For five decades, Special Olympics Minnesota has been breaking down barriers, fostering friendships and empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to reach their fullest potential. This year, our goal is to raise $50,000 in honor of our 50th anniversary. With your support, we can continue to make Minnesota a place where everyone belongs!

Special Olympics isn't just about sports; it's about building confidence, developing leadership skills and fostering a sense of belonging. Your donation directly supports athletes like Emily, whose goal is to live by the Special Olympics athlete oath: “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”  

"Inclusion in sports is important."
- Emily, Special Olympics athlete
