To be an athlete means to be in top physical condition. That is why Special Olympics provides the Healthy Athletes Program during national and international Games, just like the 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games.
Timothy Shriver is the chairman and CEO of Special Olympics and as such, he represents over 200 million people with intellectual disablilities from over 170 countries. Tim describes himself as: “Special Olympics Fan in Chief, father of 5, husband of one, brother of many, teacher at heart” and that pretty much covers it all.
Yesterday we held our second Sponsor Summit in the attendance of Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council. A few of our important sponsors, such as Belfius and Lotus Bakeries came to talk about their partnership with 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games.
SO2014 would like to thank every volunteer, runner and everyone that has supported us during the Antwerp 10 Miles. With your support, we will make the 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games just as memorable. Below you will find a link to our photo album.
When you register online for the DVV Antwerp Marathon, the 10 Miles, the Ladies, Short or Kids Run, the following question is asked on page 4: "If you would like to support the association 'Special Olympics', please indicate ‘yes’ below." ... Don't hesitate ... Say 'YES' to SO2014!
Guido Kestens, Executive Chairman of the 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games 2014, warmly welcomes you to the official SO2014 website.
"The Special Olympics Games are a celebration of the talents of athletes with intellectual disabilities. We, at Special Olympics 2014 (SO2014), call them the ‘Games of the Heart’. We invite all communities to join our world of inclusion and mutual respect, without bias or prejudice."
