Share the Torch



For 40 years, your donations have given Special Olympics Oregon athletes confidence, strength, independence, and hope. Our games aren't every four years. Our games are always. Share the torch and make a donation to provide Training for Life to a child or adult with intellectual disability today.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Special Olympics Oregon's 40 year history, the organization has never turned away an eligible athlete who has wanted to compete. For the athletes and their families, all training and competition is free because individuals like you make it possible for them to train and win. However times are changing and they need your help. There are more people with intellectual disabilities interested in participating in Special Olympics than the organization can financially support.

How will this project solve this problem?

When you help share the torch and make a donation, you make it possible for Special Olympics Oregon to reach one more athlete. Special Olympics Oregon is a critical need for community members and their family and serves the largest disability population in the state. Without it, where would they be?

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will allow children and adults with intellectual disabilities to increase their chances of success in all areas of life including health, education, employment and social skills all while providing them with Training for Life.
