About Special Olympics

In 1968 Special Olympics was founded by the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation; an organization presently counting more than 3.7 million athletes. Special Olympics brings sports within the reach of everyone with intellectual disabilities, and offers the chance to train and participate in competitions to everyone, within his or her possibilities. This way, Special Olympics helps to contribute to their physical and social development and more importantly: their social integration.

Every year, Special Olympics Belgium organizes the National Games under the protection of the Belgian Olympic Committee, counting 3,270 participating athletes so far. (www.special-olympics.be)
