SOO's Campaign Athlete Ambassador
“It’s difficult to describe in short what Special Olympics has meant to our family. My husband knows my son in a way he did not before. Our daughter has compassion, respect, and acceptance of diversity far beyond her 8 young years. And Logan, is excited to go to golf, bowling, baseball, bocce to see his friends and his coaches. He is excited to go to school and tell his friends. And his eyes are on the future for what exciting thing is coming next. What Special Olympics has been for our family is no small thing."
- Morgan Cooper, Logan’s Mother

Special Olympics Ontario is dedicated to enriching the lives of Ontarians with an intellectual disability through sport.
For over 50 years, Special Olympics has grown from a modest program serving local athletes to become the world's largest movement dedicated to promoting respect, acceptance, inclusion, and human dignity for people with intellectual disabilities through sport. Special Olympics Ontario has optimized the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle through sport to improve the well-being of individuals with an intellectual disability. We continue to improve and expand the quality, opportunity and accessibility of sport to individuals with an intellectual disability. Along with this, we strive to improve upon both the awareness and support of the community in regards to Special Olympics Ontario and those involved with us. As an organization, we work to ensure our volunteers are strongly committed to acting locally while thinking globally. Through these steps, we hope to continue to build upon the past success of the organization.
