Inclusion beyond the playing field

Special Olympics Minnesota aims to build a culture that accepts and welcomes every single person, regardless of ability or disability. We are working to foster a more inclusive society where people with intellectual disabilities are considered equal in sports, in the workforce, even in marriage. Bob Larson is an athlete, a leader in his community, and this summer, he got married to his best friend and fellow SOMN athlete, Laura.

Volunteers elevate our community

Once a year, we come together to honor the people who go above and beyond for Special Olympics Minnesota at the Distinguished Service Awards. Jason Ehrenberg, the 2019 Spirit Award recipient, is one of the many champions who has changed countless lives through his service and dedication.
