Celebrating Volunteerism … look how
far we’ve come!
volunteer driven organization with almost 10,000 registered volunteers, Special
Olympics Ontario would like to take this opportunity to thank EVERYONE for
their on-going commitment and dedication in ensuring the continued success of
this movement. Special Olympics would not be the success it is today
without you! More importantly, over 20,000 athletes would
not have the opportunity to participate, train and compete. On behalf of
athletes and their families, thank you for caring, thank
you for making a difference in the lives of individuals with an
intellectual disability. Last, but not least thank you for being
an awesome Volunteer!

President & CEO of Special Olympics Ontario.
