Over 200 athletes participate in 15 programs. Every day we see the dramatic impact that Special Olympics has on everyone involved - athletes, volunteers, coaches, family members and the community. Athletes pay a minimal fee to participate in the sport. The remaining cost of running the programs is covered by local and provincial fundraising activities. Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics.We have a sound volunteer management program and actively recruit new coaches, board members and volunteers.
Our vision is that sport will open hearts and minds towards people with intellectual disabilities and create inclusive communities all across British Columbia.
Special Olympics BC - Victoria is dedicated to enriching the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities through sport.
