Founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the Special Olympics movement has grown from a few hundred athletes to more than 3.7 million athletes in over 170 countries in all regions of the world, providing year-round sports training, athletic competition and other related programs.
The purpose of Special Olympics is to enrich the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through sport. Clicking on the logo will take you through the New Zealand Special Olympics Website.
Students living with intellectual impairments offered the chance to take part in Special Olympic activities around the region. Opportunities exist for all of these students to excel in their chosen sports.
