As part of the worldwide Special Olympics movement, North Carolina Special Olympics supports a variety of activities throughout the year.  We host local events as well as supporting local athletes as they compete in Regional, State, National and International games.  Participation is open to anyone 8 years and older  with intellectual disabilities.
