Special Olympics Alberta

Charity Story

Special Olympics Alberta offers sports programs in more than 100 communities around the province for Albertans with an intellectual disability. Since we were founded in 1980, we have grown from an organization with only a few dozen athletes, to one with about 3,000 athletes competing in 18 official sports.

The funds received from AGLC have helped supply the athletes with the uniforms and equipment they need to perform at their best. We have also been able to enhance our promotions initiatives and raise awareness about Special Olympics in the community.
