Special Olympics Kansas

Special Olympics Kansas began in 1970, growing to include more than 100 local programs and teams across the state. Today Special Olympics Kansas touches the lives of 5,300 athletes who train and compete year-round in 23 sports, including Unified Sports. Through our organization, the athletes improve physical fitness, acquire new skills, develop lifelong friendships and encourage widespread community understanding and acceptance. Our goal is for all persons with intellectual disabilities to have the chance to become useful and productive citizens who are accepted and respected in their communities. Unified Sports brings persons without intellectual disabilities together on the same team with persons with mental retardation of comparable age and athletic ability.
