Every four years, a select group of Special Olympics athletes from across the country earn an opportunity to compete in the Special Olympics USA Games.
The 2018 Special Olympics USA Games was held in Seattle from July 1-6 and featured more than 4,000 elite athletes and coaches representing 50 state programs and the District of Columbia – all supported by tens of thousands of volunteers and spectators. The week-long spectacle included Opening and Closing Ceremonies, celebrity guests, a 50th anniversary tribute, Healthy Athletes, a one-of-a-kind Torch Run and much more!
We were proud to send a delegation of 38 (28 athletes, 8 coaches and two HOD staff) to represent Team Nevada. The USA Games experience is a once-in-a-lifetime, dream opportunity for most athletes and – like every other Special Olympics initiative – is completely FREE of charge to the athletes or their families.
But we need your support! to help cover the USA Games expenses for Team Nevada including, transportation, housing, uniforms and meals. Please consider making a donation and becoming a fundraiser to help cover Team Nevada's Road to Gold.
