    Story

    WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

    SPECIAL OLYMPICS CORNWALL provides coaching and competitions in Olympic type sports for those with an Intellectual (Learning) Disability. Achieving through sport gives the athletes a sense of fulfillment. It allows them to bond as team members and helps them to share their achievements with family, friends, carers, guardians. It gives them a new found confidence and lets them believe in themselves. It shows them that they matter. That they are 'special' for the right reasons. That they are valued members of society.

    SPECIAL OLYMPICS GREAT BRITAIN is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year and is holding the Anniversary Games in Stirling Scotland from August 9th to August 13th. SO Cornwall will be competing at the Games and need to raise sufficient funds to cover the cost of flights, transport to and from airports and competition entry fees. Can you help?

    To earn your donations we will be undertaking a variety of events including sponsored walks, cycle rides, climbs and a marathon boccia session. These will take place throughout the summer and will be posted on this site as an when they occur.

      Thank you, Everyone! Our athletes did themselves and Cornwall proud. Here are the results: Pairs Benji & Eileen - 5th place Catherine & Shikira - 6th place Treeve & Sean - 5th place Singles Shikira - Gold Eileen - Silver Sean - Silver Benji - 5th place Treeve - 5th place Catherine - 6th place They all did incredibly well. They were all tough games and our athletes battled for every point and, win or lose, were gracious to the very end. You can't ask for more than that! This page is open until the end of September for further donations
