Building our Community!
Special Olympics Hamilton County works to spread compassion and acceptance in a way that can unite everyone. Our goal is to awaken everyone -- and our community -- to each person’s common humanity. This vision of inclusion starts at the local level and works it way to a state level, national level, and world level.
We want to spread awareness!
SOHC does this through a wide range of trainings, competitions, health screenings and fund-raising events. We also create opportunities for families, community members, local leaders, businesses, law enforcement, celebrities, dignitaries and others to band together to change attitudes and support athletes.
Some of our key program efforts to build communities include: Unified Sports, Athlete Leadership Programs, Family Engagement, Healthy Athletes and Young Athletes.
SOHC knows no boundaries. Without regard to gender, race, religion, economic or education level, Special Olympics has the ability to unite all walks of life.
