It's been a crazy couple of months for the Special Olympics Asia Pacific team. But when we're in the thick of it...let's remember to have a little fun. Meanwhile, we are grateful for all the support along the way, from acquaintances to partnerships and friendships forged~ A big thank you!
What do "Inclusive" and "Unified" mean to you? At Special Olympics, they mean a society where the divide between people with and without intellectual disability is bridged; one where our hearts and minds are aligned toward the same goal.
On 28th to 30 October, more than 30 football coaches from across the Asia Pacific joined the fight for inclusion with help from trainers from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.
I CAN I CARE 2017 by Team APEX:
People look at you. They all stare. They point at you. They shout things. They make you feel different… It’s FANTASTIC!”
You change lives when you share.

An I CAN I CARE PROJECT for Special Olympics Asia Pacific
Nearly 50 years ago, Eunice Kennedy Shriver began an inclusion revolution that changed the world. She was a true champion and pioneer of inclusion. On 12 July, the ESPYS will honor Eunice Kennedy Shriver with the prestigious Arthur Ashe Courage Award. We are immensely proud of our Founder.There’s no one more deserving of this #ESPYS award. I’m proud to be a part of the @SpecialOlympics movement. #EKS#ESPYS2017#changethegame
Throwback to our Regional Leadership Conference 2017 earlier this year, when Athlete Leaders from @soasiapacific had fun strutting their stuff at a photo shoot. These may be outtakes, but we think they look absolutely amazing!
