    This is the official discussion thread for the cause Special Olympics. Its EIN is 52-0889518 and it's a public charity based in Washington, DC. Research more info about the cause on GuideStar and Charity Navigator.

    Special Olympics provide sports training and athletic competition in a variety of sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

    Special Olympics is a sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round training and competitions to athletes throughout the US and also internationally.  It is headquartered in DC but operates in just about every city, almost certainly in yours also!  I volunteer in my local community helping the athletes get better at swimming.  Check out my one minute video and please vote for Special Olympics!  Thank you for your help!

    Members of our swim team went to the Summer Games in Raleigh and did great!  Here is a link to the newspaper story in the Outer Banks Sentinel:
