About Us

What We Do


Special Olympics Northern California enriches the lives of more than 21,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities and their  communities in Northern California through sports, education, and  athlete health.

All of our programs are at no cost to the participants.

Our athletes are  like any other athlete, they like to train, they like to compete and  win or lose, they always try their best.  The confidence and self-esteem  they gain on the playing field carries over onto the playing field of  life, helping to make them contributing members of their community.   We  believe that Special Olympics is more than sports, it is "Training for  Life!"

"Let me win

But if I can not win

Let me be brave in the attempt"
