Join us for a fundraising challenge.

Special Olympics Ireland is a sports organisation for people with an intellectual disability, but we also provide our athletes with far more than the physical benefits of sport. Special Olympics changes lives. 

Through sport, athletes develop both physically and emotionally, they make new friends, realise their dreams, and know they can fit in. Special Olympics Ireland enables our athletes to achieve and win not only in sport but in life too. Learn more about our Mission and Vision here.

In order to help continue the work of our organisation, we rely on YOU! Our amazing supporters. So please,where you can, join a fundraising event or organise your own. If you need help or advise in organising your own event you can email us at
