  • Special Olympics at CR South:
     
    The Special Olympics was started almost 50 years ago by Eunice Kennedy Shriver as a day camp for children with Intellectual Disabilities at her home.  Her ultimate vision was people with Intellectual Disabilities could all compete and unify the public that come from all different situations. The organization now provides year round training and competitions in a variety of sports to over 5 million athletes worldwide.
