Special Olympics Johnson County (SOJC) is your local chapter to this great organization. SOJC provides year round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in order to create experiences like the joy of achievement, being included in the community, building skills, developing leadership abilities, and making lifelong friends.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
