Special Olympics Oregon is led by a staff and board with broad corporate and nonprofit experience. We are also supported by several volunteer groups, all of whom share a commitment to put the athletes’ best interests at the center of everything we do.
Our people take great pride in offering sports and programs that help our athletes develop new skills, get healthier, grow their self-confidence and make lifelong friendships. Living with an intellectual disability can be a very isolating experience. It’s our goal to change that for every Special Olympics athlete.
