Special Olympics NC

Special Olympics North Carolina is one of the largest Special Olympics programs in the world with nearly 40,000 registered athletes who train and compete in year-round programs in 19 different sports.  

A voluntary Board of Directors serves as the governing body for Special Olympics North Carolina and employs a President/CEO responsible for carrying out programs and activities.  Twenty-four staff members based in five statewide offices work closely with volunteers to provide Special Olympics programs for people with intellectual disabilities. 

These programs are organized by approximately 100 sub-accredited local programs throughout the state, and the involvement of some 20,000 volunteers makes possible nearly 8,000 sport practices and 400 competition events at local, area, state, regional, and national levels each year.
