More About Our Partner

Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition, holding more than 300 Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Support Generation SERVE

We provide a trained facilitator for every volunteer project we do and the cost of hiring, training, and supporting our team adds up! We suggest a donation of $30 per family to help us cover our activity costs, or you can also become a family sponsor. We appreciate your support!
