Special Olympics is a year-round program that motivates mentally retarded children and adults all over the world to become involved in athletic training and competition. The event is modeled after the traditional Olympic games. Participants compete in sports like basketball, bowling, cycling, gymnastics, ice skating, powerlifting, skiing, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. Schools and communities at the local level often offer training programs to help the athletes prepare for the games.
 
In the United States, Special Olympics are held at the local and state levels each year. In approximately 100 other countries that participate, the national Special Olympics consist of summer games and winter games, which in turn occur every two years. The program concludes in August of the year prior to the traditional Olympics. Competitors in the Special Olympics must be eight years of age or older.
 
Eunice Kennedy Shriver founded the Special Olympics. Funds from the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation were used to establish the games in 1968. The organization’s headquarters are in Washington, D.C. Over one million athletes have competed in the Special Olympics since they began.
