They live in urban centers and rural corners of the state

Approximately 6,460 athletes range in age from 2 to 21 years old, and 8,870 athletes are 22 years old and older.

An average athlete visits 50 different physicians until she or he can find one that can help

Special Olympics Colorado provides year-round training and competition in 22 sports for 19,600+ athletes living in the state of Colorado. With the support of more than 9,000 volunteers and the generosity of Colorado citizens, corporations and local businesses, Special Olympics Colorado is able to offer more than 100 events annually to individuals with intellectual disabilities age 2 and up. Participation with other athletes, Unified partners (typically developing peers), coaches, sponsors and volunteers builds confidence and creates opportunities to participate as productive and respected members of society by increasing public awareness of the athletes’ capabilities.

While SOCO is about sports, it is not only about sports. Youth and adult leadership programs, health and fitness education and screenings have proven immensely successful. All participants– athletes and their unified partners– benefit from these successful programs.
