Every day, individuals with intellectual disabilities face adversity in the community. Even in today's day and age, not only are their own lives affected by disrespect and ignorance - but so are the lives of their parents, siblings, and other loved ones.
Special Olympics Hawai'i (SOHI) provides a safe and encouraging environment for local adults and children with intellectual disabilities. They gain confidence in themselves as well as receive the warmth of acceptance from a supportive community of fellow athletes, unified partners, family members, and SOHI staff/volunteers.
SOHI athletes participate in year round training & competition, health screenings, and unified sports at no cost to themselves or their families.
