Special Olympics USA Games
Did you know that the Special Olympics USA Games are coming to Seattle this July? Join us to learn more about how we can promote equity for all by supporting the Special Olympics athletes this year
From July 1-6, 2018 more than 4,000 athletes and coaches from all 50 states and the District of Columbia will descend upon Seattle and the surrounding region. The Special Olympics USA Games will be the biggest sporting event to hit the Seattle area in more than 25 years.
In addition to showcasing the awe-inspiring abilities of thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities, the 2018 USA Games in Seattle will model the ideals of inclusion and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics movement.
The 2018 USA Games will serve as a catalyst for the City of Inclusion initiative and will showcase the work Seattle area businesses and organizations are doing to create a community where people with intellectual disabilities are meaningfully and fully welcome and valued.
ABOUT SPECIAL OLYMPICS WASHINGTON
Special Olympics Washington provides year-round sports, health, education and community building opportunities to people with intellectual disabilities all across Washington State. Special Olympics is able to remove barriers and stigmas that people with intellectual disabilities face, and to share with the community the gifts and talents they possess. Everyone who comes in touch with Special Olympics is impacted in a way that helps them strive to achieve their personal best.
Mission Statement: Special Olympics Washington BUILDS Communities and LEADS in Wellness through Sports and Inclusion.
Young Professionals with Pride (YPP) events are an excellent way to meet civic and community leaders, build relationships with other LGBT and allied professionals (21-39), and to take advantage of opportunities to increase personal and professional networks through social, educational, and philanthropic activities.
YPP is open to all industries, from tech to corporate to the nonprofit sector, all are welcome!
A priority of YPP is to be inclusive of everyone’s professional experiences and to build bridges between all identities of the LGBTQ and Allied communities.
Young Professionals of Seattle (YPOS) was established in 2011 to provide a platform where locals can connect with other young professionals and thaw the rumored “Seattle Freeze”. A few years and over 12,000 members later, our responsibility to the community has expanded.
How old is “young”? We don’t really care… but if you’re active and passionate about entrepreneurship, business, networking or simply forwarding your career, then join our community.
