"Sometimes we do well on our own, but there are times when we do even better with others." - Jason Gieschen, Special Olympics Nebraska athlete
Globally, Special Olympics utilizes an army of more than 500,000 volunteers! In Nebraska alone, we need more than 5,000 volunteers annually to fulfill our mission of providing year-round sports training and competition, leadership training, coaching and working with youth and schools.
Special Olympics Nebraska does not charge athletes to participate and we are able to provide these opportunities by the generosity of our fans who donate their time and provide financial support.
