About USA Games
June 5-12, 2022, the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games will unite more than 5,500 athletes and coaches from all 50 states and the Caribbean, 20,000 volunteers and 125,000 spectators during one of the country’s most cherished sporting events. We all have reasons to shine. For Special Olympics athletes, one of those reasons is the love of sport. Special Olympics athletes display remarkable abilities not only on the field, but in all areas of life. By celebrating their dedication and perseverance, we become champions for a more inclusive world. A world where we all Shine As One.
The mission of Special Olympics 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.
SOTX has a powerful impact on our community at large and your donation to support our athletes going to USA Games will reach far beyond the competition.
Special Olympics athletes:
perform better in school
enjoy stronger family relationships
make more friends
are more prepared to live and work in their communities
44% of Special Olympics athletes become employed, compared to only 28% of individuals with intellectual disabilities who do not participate in Special Olympics.
89¢ of every dollar raised by Special Olympics Texas goes directly to support programs for SOTX athletes.
100% of funds raised for Team Texas will support athletes going to USA Games 2022 in Orlando, Florida
