Special Olympics Texas is a second home to many of our loved ones with physical and intellectual disabilities! SOTX is proud to offer life-altering sports programs where we can all come together as a big family and celebrate the uniqueness and abilities of all!
We would like to invite you to the celebration of Special Olympics Incorporated's 50th Anniversary. In 1968 an amazing woman by the name of Eunice Kennedy Shriver invited athletes from around the globe to participate in our first event at Soldier Field in Chicago.
In ancient Rome, the gladiators went into the arena with these words on their lips:
'Let me WIN.
But if I cannot win, let me be BRAVE in the attempt.'
During that time we started a global movement of inclusion and acceptance that's still going strong. Today, those words are our athlete oath. We invite you to be a part of the movement. Be a part of the Celebration. Run for Special Olympics!
Play Unified. Live unified.
It is our vision to become the premier provider of Special Olympics training and competition in the world. We approach each endeavor with a single intent - to improve the quality of life for our athletes. The challenges of the future are embraced with enthusiasm and commitment, ensuring that the changing face and needs of our athletes are met.
