Special Olympics Oregon provides Training for Life to more than 10,000 participants each year, yet there are still more than 100,000 individuals that could benefit from our programs.

Challenge

Although Special Olympics Oregon serves the largest disability population in the state, there are 100,000 more Oregonians that could benefit from our year-round programs.

Solution

Special Olympics Oregon never turns away an athlete who is interested in our programs. With the demand for participating in our programs growing every day, Special Olympics Oregon needs supporters to help these individuals. You can support an athlete by donating on $12 a month for 12 months.

Long-Term Impact

Having a donor base that is committed to supporting these individuals on a consistent basis only at $12 a month will allow young children to participate in our program for years. Many of our athletes have been in our programs for decades and this is the only social activity they have. It is proven that those involved in our programs are more employable, do better in school and have a better relationship with their families.
