    Special Olympics 50th Anniversary

    Tue Jul 17 - Sun Jul 22, 2018
     

    The spark that became today's Special Olympics movement ignited at the first 1968 International Summer Games in Chicago, Ill., USA. Five decades later, we are returning to Chicago to launch the year-long Special Olympics 50th Anniversary celebrations. Here's what we have planned so far: From 17 to 21 July, the inaugural Special Olympics Unified Football Cup competition will team people with and without intellectual disabilities from all over the world. A total of 24 teams -- from every region of the world -- will take part. These include 16 men's teams and eight women's teams. On 20 July, The Special Olympics 50th Anniversary Law Enforcement Torch Run Commemorative Run will include Special Olympics athletes and law enforcement officers from Illinois and elsewhere. On 22 July, in Chicago and around the world, a day for everyone to celebrate the history of Special Olympics and its bright future. Athletes from the first 1968 Games will be joined by today's athletes to tell their stories of empowerment. Members of the public, Special Olympics families and others come together on the playing field for Unified Sports experiences. Change the Game Day will be a global festival of togetherness and sharing for all. Join us as we play together, learn from each other, and chart an inspiring course for the future!
