Your gift of $50 helps provide an athlete with training equipment for one season
Every day, Special Olympics Oregon empowers athletes to exceed their personal bests on and off the playing field. Across the state, we support Oregon’s largest disability population by celebrating their abilities. And because the need for financial resources is ongoing, we rely on volunteers, donations, corporate partnerships and fundraising events. (Please note that we do not receive funds from the Kennedy Foundation.)
