Special Olympics AZSPECIAL OLYMPICS ARIZONA

Kirk Development participates in fundraising events for the Special Olympics. For people with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics is often the only place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities and develop belief in themselves. For athletes, Special Olympics sports provide a gateway to empowerment, competence, acceptance and joy. The lessons learned in Special Olympics also impact their life skills. Sports training enhances focus and gives participants a structure for learning important lessons about perseverance, endurance and setting goals. Many people are surprised to know, more than half of adult Special Olympics athletes in the United States are employed, versus 10 percent of intellectually disabled persons who do not participate in Special Olympics.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

If you are a child/adult with intellectual disabilities and would like to be on a team, play sports, compete, or just have fun, come join Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ). We have teams throughout the State of Arizona or you could get your family, friends, school, day program, or local park district to start up a new team. If you are interested and need assistance please call Deb Randazzo, Athlete Outreach Coordinator, at 602.230.1112 or email here.
