$30,000 Goal

Your gift is a lifeline to people with intellectual disabilities. 

Every dollar you give up to $30,000 will be MATCHED thanks to Kurt Rasmussen and an anonymous donor!

Sports are an incredible tool. They provide growth and development in self-esteem, social skills, physical fitness and leadership. But most importantly, sports give people the chance to be included and build relationships and friendships that last a lifetime. Some athletes with intellectual disabilities experience these things for the first time in their life when they join Special Olympics Minnesota. With sports as the driving force, Special Olympics Minnesota has been leading the charge on making Minnesota more inclusive for people with intellectual disabilities. 

Austin is from Springfield, MN. He joined a Special Olympics Minnesota powerlifting team five years ago as a shy and soft spoken 22-year-old. Since then, he has shattered state records, won four gold medals at the national Special Olympics USA Games, and made lasting friendships with his coaches and teammates. Through Special Olympics Minnesota, Austin found inclusion, belonging and power.

"Special Olympics Minnesota is a lifeline to athletes who have intellectual disabilities."
- Harmony Clark, mom of Austin, Special Olympics athlete
