Part of the philosophy guiding Special Olympics programming is that the cost of the program does not fall to the athletes’ or their families. We rely on the generosity of the community at-large to provide quality staffing, equipment, and facilities for our athletes. With your help, we ensure that our Aquatics Team can continue to practice year-round, and it also allows us the ability to add more programs and services to youth and adults with special needs. Ultimately, our goal is to provide an adaptive option for every program we offer at the YMCA.

If you would like to be part of the group that ensures our athletes’ the ability to be a part of a team, please consider donating.
