Help us train more role models
The ambassador program within Special Olympics Sweden is about making visible and increasing interest in sports for people with intellectual disabilities. The program trains young athletes to be strong leaders and role models to get more people moving. People with intellectual disabilities are often further away from association life and are less visible in sports than the rest of the population. The group makes up about 1 percent of Sweden's population, but is often excluded from social contexts such as association life and public health surveys. If we look at participation in sports associations, the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society Affairs shows that young people in special schools are active in sports associations to a lesser extent than other young people. Your contribution gives people with intellectual disabilities a voice and the opportunity for an active lifestyle. The target of SEK 10,000 corresponds to the approximate cost of training a new ambassador.
Help us to spread the joy of movement
Special Olympics School Days are sports days for special schools where students get the chance to discover the joy of movement in a simple and fun way. Local sports associations participate during the day to reduce the step of becoming active in an association. The sports days have been arranged since 2015 and annually given thousands of children and young people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to try out sports that are in the local area. After the day, many students have moved on to a sports club. Your contribution creates the opportunity for an active lifestyle for people with intellectual disabilities and contributes to a more inclusive sports movement. The goal of SEK 20,000 corresponds to the approximate cost of arranging a School Day.
Support Special Olympics Sweden
Special Olympics Sweden conducts and develops sports activities for people with intellectual disabilities. For us, sport is not just a physical activity but a way to create a more inclusive society where everyone gets the chance to participate in sports and other leisure activities. This is something that everyone by law should have the right to, but which so many have still ended up outside. By creating a context, we counteract the exclusion that affects many with intellectual disabilities. With the help of sports, they get a meaningful and healthy leisure time that makes a spark awaken and that personal development accelerates. Special Olympics is broad and exercise sports at all levels, but it is also the common talk before kick-off and the hug after the goal. Our ambition is to give everyone - regardless of ability - the opportunity to show their true selves by doing their best. Your contribution goes to get even more people to activate.
