We are proud to announce a new partnership with a nonprofit that is near and dear to our hearts – the RI Special Olympics! We work with charities big and small across the country but are always excited to showcase organizations local to us in Rhode Island. The RI Special Olympics is a global organization that empowers people with intellectual disabilities. They boost confidence through the “power and joy of sport” and give individuals a chance to compete, achieve, and shine.
Rhode Island Special Olympics
The first-ever Special Olympics International Games was held in 1968 in Chicago, organized by Eunice Kennedy Shriver. This first event featured 1,000 athletes from three countries and has continued to grow worldwide since then. The goal of the Special Olympics is to improve the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. This goes beyond just athletics! The Special Olympics Young Athletes Program provides health services to people with intellectual disabilities. and is the largest worldwide provider!
The RI Special Olympics offers over 1,600 opportunities in 19 sports over the course of the year! Athletes can train and compete in a variety of sports based on the season. Some of the sports include basketball, tennis, soccer, Alpine skiing, swimming, and sailing! There are currently over 4,000 athletes involved with the RI Special Olympics!
We are lucky to have a RI Special Olympics Athlete as part of our very own team! Frank is a medalist in Track & Field and Softball, and we love to cheer him on at the Summer Games!
