Supporting Special Olympics
Sydney Upper North Shore
Special Olympics Sydney Upper North Shore makes a positive impact on the quality of life of children and adults with an intellectual disability. Our schools program helps children and their parents to take that first step of participation through a professionally delivered gross motor skills program.
Our grass-roots sports program starts with 1-on-1 support and provides access to weekly participation that would not otherwise be available. Over 250 athletes at 40 venues in 11 sports across the North Shore.
Where we can we also offset the costs of our althletes and volunteer support team members travelling to regional, state, national and world competions. We help develop leaders and role models through our Athlete Leadership Program.
None of this is possible without financial support – thanks so much on behalf of our special athletes for making a difference.
