Special Olympics Maryland – Allegany County



Welcome to the Allegany County Special Olympics Website. Our Special Olympics program is a year-round sports program for Allegany County children and adults with opportunities to grow for everyone!

*Special Olympics Maryland is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under U.S. Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). EIN: 23-7089144

pageChildren and adults with intellectual disabilities who participate in Special Olympics develop improved physical fitness and motor skills, greater self-confidence and a more positive self-image. They grow mentally, socially and spiritually and, through their activities, exhibit boundless courage and enthusiasm, enjoy the rewards of friendship and ultimately discover not only new abilities and talents but “their voices” as well.


The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for citizens with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing 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.
