Special Olympics Nevada would not exist today and could not have been created without the time, energy, and dedication of thousands of volunteers. The people who get involved in Special Olympics come from all walks of life. Whether you are part of our Law Enforcement community raising thousands of dollars for us, a super jock who wants to share your expertise, a civic minded organization looking to donate a few hours, we welcome your support. On behalf of the athletes we serve, thank you for your interest.
