About the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games

In communities around the world, Special Olympics sports training and competition transforms the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. Through millions of acts of inclusion where people with and without intellectual disabilities are brought together through Special Olympics programs, longstanding myths are dispelled, negative attitudes changed, and new opportunities to embrace and celebrate the giftedness of people with intellectual disabilities are created.

Special Olympics began in 1968 when Eunice Kennedy Shriver organized the first International Special Olympics Games in Chicago, Illinois. Run at the highest level of professionalism and integrity, Special Olympics USA Games - a national sporting event – showcases the skill and courage of Special Olympics athletes. The 2018 Special Olympics USA Games will use the power and joy of sports as the catalyst for driving social change, changing perceptions, and creating more inclusive communities throughout the Seattle area and the United States, by educating and empowering volunteers, sponsors, businesses, spectators and general public to become agents for change long after the USA Games have concluded.

The USA Games (June 30 – July 6, 2018) will bring 4,000 athletes and coaches to compete in sports at the University of Washington, King County Aquatics Center and surrounding venues, while experiencing Seattle’s beauty and world class attractions. 2018 also marks the 50th Anniversary of Special Olympics.
