Unite and Change the World



Our friends at Albertsons and Safeway are supporting Special Olympics Wyoming with an amazing store event July 1 -21, 2018.

All the stores in Wyoming are running this special promotion.  During July our wonderful partners at Albertsons and Safeway will be asking customers to donate to People with disabilities this supports Special Olympics Wyoming. This partnership will help us raise awareness for our program and generate funds. Thank you Albertsons/Safeway for this amazing support again this year.  


Let the store teams know we appreciate their efforts!

Our Mission

The mission of Special Olympics Wyoming is to provide year round participation in sports training and athletic competition in a variety of well-coached Olympic-Type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities by providing athletes with continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness skills, express courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of talents, skills and friendship with their families, friends, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Our Philosophy

black logoSpecial Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy and benefit from participation in individual and team sports, adapted as necessary to meet the needs of those with intellectual and physical limitations.

Special Olympics believes that consistent training is indispensable to the development of an individual’s sports skills. In addition, competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these skills, measuring progress, and providing incentives for personal growth.
