What is The Reach Report?

The 2013 Special Olympics Reach Report is our annual review of key metrics compiled across our Movement to reflect the scale and status of our sports, education, health and community-building programs.

We've drawn on data from our annual census, health database, sport surveys and other new data sources. This report shows the profound impact of our work and is a progress report on our goals.

The report shows continuing growth in the Special Olympics movement in participating athletes, competitions, volunteers and revenues.
