For 40 years Arizona communities have helped Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ) athletes realize their dreams through sports training and competition. Today, that dream extends to over 16,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the state. These are the real results for our competitors: as their dreams are realized, lives are changed through training and competition, but more importantly, self-confidence is built, social competency is gained and self-esteem soars.
Special Olympics Arizona athletes are never charged for training or competition; all fees and expenses are fully covered through generous financial support from donors, sponsors, and benefactors – people like you. Through your support, the Special Olympics Arizona athlete is inspired to greatness.
