What We Do
We transform the lives of over 7,800 individuals with intellectual disabilities across our state through sports, health, education, advocacy and leadership. Together, we can eliminate discrimination and fear and build a future of justice and joy.
Sport inspires so much. Relentless joy. Collective hope. Fearless determination. Strength in the face of adversity.
And yet, Special Olympics Nebraska is much more than just sports. And our athletes are inspiring on and off the field.
COVID has tried us. It silenced our fields, quieted our basketball courts, and emptied our podiums. We've all had feelings of isolation, loneliness, and a fear of the unknown.
But joy can't be cancelled. Together we'll reimagine sports. We'll ensure hope persists. And our determination will enable us to be stronger together.
****In 2021, let's stay strong, together.****
