Special Olympics is a global organization that serves more than 4 million athletes with intellectual disabilities working with hundreds of thousands of volunteers and coaches each year. Since the establishment of Special Olympics in 1968, the number of people with and without intellectual disabilities who are involved with the organization has been growing. Bonaire’s first participation was in the 1998 games in North Carolina. Since then our team has traveled the world every four years to Ireland, China and other places. Next year they go to Los Angeles, US. Bonaire has strong, experienced athletes and dedicated volunteers who provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Those activities give them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship.
