Special Olympics Peterborough is dedicated to people with an intellectual disability, but it provides athletes with far more than just the physical benefits of sport. Special Olympics changes lives.

With the opportunities to excel and have fun come the benefits of improved health and self-image. For many athletes, participating in Special Olympics is a path to healthy living, empowerment, acceptance, and friendship. SOP is dedicated to increasing the physical fitness, confidence and other sport and life skills of our athletes; all in a positive and supportive environment.
