Unified Sports

Like a healthy tree, rooted by the principle of inclusion, the Special Olympics movement has sprouted branches, including one that brings together intellectually disabled athletes with partners from all walks of life, among them-- the WWE. Its Chief Brand Officer-- Stephanie McMahon, tells us the story of Unified Sports.

 

Bogucki is a one-of-a-kind athlete

Every athlete who competes in Special Olympics’ events is unique, with their own personal story of determination and achievement. But the tale of one runner stands apart, because it concerns an accomplishment that is truly one-of-a-kind and so is she. Her name is Bree Bogucki.

 

 

Hannah Teter and Dana Schilts' unbreakable bond

As we continue our celebration of the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics, we take a look at how pro snowboarder and Olympic Gold Medalist Hannah Teter brought her sport to Special Olympics in a very impactful way. And, in doing so, she created an unbreakable bond with one Special Olympics athlete, Dana Shilts.

 

 

Special Olympics helps free teenager from isolation

The inclusive mission of Special Olympics uplifts people all across the globe. From a stadium of athletes with intellectual disabilities all getting a chance to compete to a refugee camp where a misunderstood teenager once lived in horrific confinement. Yet his liberation was only the beginning of the powerful message that this young man is now getting to share through soccer, through track, and through his own words.
