Special Olympics

Special Olympics is very dear to Phi Sigma Kappa's heart. If you ask a Phi Sig how they feel about the organization, chances are very high that you will hear a personal story about how his involvement with PSK has raised his awareness and involvement with Special Olympics.

  • On average, Phi Sigma Kappa raises $75,000 for Special Olympics each year, through fundraisers, sponsorships, and events held by our undergraduate brothers.
     
  • On average, Phi Sigma Kappa members serve 13,000 volunteer hours each year for Special Olympics. 

Special Olympics International was chosen by delegates to the 55th General Convention as the international service project of Phi Sigma Kappa.

Special Olympics is an international program of year-round sports training and athletic competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Its goal is for all to have the chance to become useful and productive citizens who are accepted and respected in their communities. The benefits of participation in Special Olympics for individuals with intellectual disabilities include improved physical fitness and motor skills, greater self-confidence, a more positive self-image, friendships and increased family support.

Founded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Special Olympics operates in 95 percent of all the counties in the United States, hosting more than 15,000 events in schools, centers, and cities at the local, area and chapter level. A state directory is provided for your convenience.

Special Olympics has favorable name recognition with 98% of the United States public and its events are covered by 72 percent of all newspapers and television stations. Of 96 non-profit organizations ranked by respondents of a recent poll, Special Olympics was viewed at the most credible charity.
