About Special Olympics

Special Olympics Southern California enriches the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities and their communities through sports, education, and athlete health. Every dollar raised through We Run the City not only provides free year-round sports training and competitions for our athletes, it also gives them empowerment, joy, and improved health. Special Olympics helps build the self-confidence of a person with intellectual disabilities so they can work and give back to their community. It drives their determination so they can overcome hurdles. It also inspires people to open their hearts to the wider range of human potential and talent, and provides our athletes with an opportunity to shine and live happier, healthier, and longer lives.
