Special Olympics' vision is to become the premier provider of Special Olympics training and competition in the world. They approach each endeavor with a single intent - to improve the quality of life for our athletes. The challenges of the future are embraced with enthusiasm and commitment, ensuring that the changing face and needs of their athletes are met.

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.

This is a year-round movement that provides sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Police officers will help serve guests at the “Tip-A-Cop” event and collect donations as you enjoy your dinner.
