Mission and Vision

The mission of Special Olympics Oregon is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.

The vision of Special Olympics Oregon is to help bring all persons with intellectual disabilities into the larger society under conditions whereby they are accepted, respected and given the chance to become useful and productive citizens.

 


Special Olympics Oregon Improves Educational Performance Miles Krieck,Yamhill County athlete:

Once painfully shy, Miles graduates from high school and has a job.

“Miles was just so shy when he first came to a practice 10 years ago. To look at him now—he’s just so much more social, and he’s done so well in school and at work.”—Nancy Keim Yamhill County LPC
