At Special Olympics at UGA, we work with children and adults with disabilities throughout Athens-Clarke county by fundraising, hosting fun events, assisting in their adaptive P.E. classes, and helping them prepare for the Special Olympics State Games.

On Monday April 16th, Special Olympics at UGA will be hosting our 9th Annual Hometown Rivals baseball game. We encourage anyone and everyone to come out and support our athletes! Tickets can be purchased by contacting an executive board member or through our EventBrite link, which will be posted soon!

This is an exciting event in which our Special Olympics athletes from rival schools in Athens-Clarke County will be paired with UGA athletes to play a baseball game on UGA’s Foley Field. This event is our largest fundraising campaign of the year, which helps us put on awesome events year-round for our inspiring athletes! After covering the cost of hosting our events, the money we raise is donated directly to the Athens-Clarke County chapter of Special Olympics to help send our athletes to the Special Olympics Games they excitedly anticipate.

In recent years, as illustrated by our attached graphic, the cost of sending our athletes to the Summer and Winter Games has increased significantly. This change has not only reignited our passion towards guaranteeing our athletes a successful and positive experience, but it makes you more important than ever.

Please help us reach our goal of raising $15,000 at the end of this year by donating today. By doing so, you’ll be helping change the lives of our wonderful athletes. More so than that, you join our Special Olympics family. You become a reason behind our athletes’ smiles, the hands cheering them on, and the arms that embrace every athlete and volunteer that joins our community. In addition to your valuable sponsorship, we invite you to come out, watch the game, and enjoy being part of the Special Olympics family!
