What We Do
Special Olympics Nebraska transforms the lives of over 7,500 individuals with and without disabilities through programming in sports, health, and education. We believe in ending discrimination and fear and building a future of justice and joy.
We offer 20 Olympic-style individual and team sports that provide meaningful training and competition opportunities for people with and without intellectual disabilities year-round.
We provide access to health services for a population with significant unmet health needs by offering free health screenings year-round in 8 different disciplines.
We partner with schools to provide programming that empowers youth and educators to be leaders of change by encouraging inclusion, participation, advocacy and leadership.
We encourage athletes to use their strengths and voices to share their stories, undertake meaningful leadership roles, breakdown stereotypes, and create more inclusive communities.
