How Unified Sports make an impact on and off the field.

Special Olympics Oregon Timber Unified team
Special Olympics Oregon Timber Unified team

On June 23, 2014, Special Olympics Oregon (SOOR) Timbers Unified Soccer team from Woodburn High School competed in the 2nd leg of the Cascadia Challenge, held at the adidas Village. They competed against the Special Olympics Washington (SOWA) Sounders, with the SOOR Timbers taking the win 6-1! The event was part of the Portland Timbers vs. Seattle Sounders FC rivalry weekend.

The next day, both teams participated in a pre-game exhibition match, with the SOOR team winning 3-2, at the Timbers vs. Sounders game at Providence Park where they received tons of support and motivation from Timbers Army.

For many of the Woodburn High School partners and athletes, this was their first experience attending a Timbers game, let alone playing on the Timbers field and meeting the players! This was an incredible experience that they are sure to remember.

About Project Unify

Unified Sports® is a program that combines approximately equal numbers of Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (known as unified partners) on sports teams for training and competition.

Our Project Unify program provides positive social interactions between teammates and often leads to long-lasting friendships on and off the field, promotes physical health, shatters stereotypes about intellecutal disabilities, and provides an opportunity for students to create social change through sport. Your support helps Special Olympics Oregon sustain and grow our participation in Unified Sports throughout the state.

Visit the Project Unify website for more information about SOOR Unified Sports.
