Support Special Olympics Athletes in Oregon

Fun Filled Fall Regional Games!

THANK YOU THANK YOU! We have raised over $5,000 for our athletes through GlobalGiving and now have more than 10,000 children and adults participating around the state! Our work is never done though, 100,000 more could benefit from our year-round programs with your support!

As always, our Fall Games were a huge hit! Below are a few highlights from around the state:

  • The Washington County Spiking Tigers earned the gold medal in Division B at the recent 2012 Special Olympics Oregon Fall Regional Games volleyball tournament in Corvallis.  With a reputation for enthusiastic support of teammates and opponent alike (you could definitely hear the loudest cheers at their matches), the Tigers were also presented with the sportsmanship award.
  • Special Olympics Oregon Washington County Timbers FC teammates J. Simmons and Irene Song catch a breath and some shelter during the 2012 Special Olympics Oregon Fall Regional Games soccer tournament in Corvallis.  25 teams from Oregon and SW Washington braved the elements to compete in the all day event.
  • The Special Olympics Oregon Yamhill Wildcats Unified Sports® volleyball teammates share a moment between matches at the recent 2012 SOOR Fall Regional Games volleyball competition in Corvallis.  In their first ever tournament, the Wildcats earned the silver medal in the Unified Division.
