Thank you for 20 Years

We’re celebrating 2020 National Volunteer Week to acknowledge the generous contribution of Special Olympics Australia’s volunteers.

Volunteers are the backbone of our movement. They are coaches, trainers, officials, event organizers, fundraisers, managers or fans cheering in the stands.

Special Olympics would not exist today—and could not have been created—without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of our volunteers. We owe so much to these dedicated people who find the time to make the world a better place.

Thank you for 20 years’ service.
