Special Olympics Minnesota is celebrating 50 years of inclusion! We’ve been working hard to create a new world of inclusion and acceptance for people with intellectual disabilities since 1973, and we can’t wait to see what the next 50 years have in store!

How does the 50th Anniversary fundraising campaign work?
This is an easy fundraising opportunity: Your team keeps 50% of the funds you raise! There is no need to opt in, complete an application or coordinate. We have already created a fundraising page for each individual on your team; they just need to share it with their network. We will even provide a fundraising toolkit to everyone once the campaign kicks off on Monday, May 15.
There is no obligation to participate in or promote this campaign.
