Page content starts here Special Olympics Idaho is committed to empowering people with intellectual disabilities on and off the playing field. By working to remove obstacles, change attitudes and open minds, Special Olympics Idaho provides opportunities for its athletes to demonstrate courage, experience joy and share their gifts, skills and friendship with the world. Special Olympics Idaho's initiatives change lives.

Athlete Leadership Programs (ALPs) offer athletes the opportunity to take active leadership roles both on and off the playing field through self-directed, meaningful participation in virtually any aspect such serving on Boards of Directors, officiating competitions, or coaching other athletes.

Through its Family Leadership and Support initiative, Special Olympics offers families not just opportunities for sports, social interaction and fun, but also a much-needed support system.

The Special Olympics Healthy Athletes® initiative's mission is to improve each athlete's ability to train and compete in Special Olympics. The Special Olympics Healthy Athletes Initiative includes several disciplines: Fit Feet, FUNfitness, Health Promotion, Healthy Hearing, Opening Eyes® and Special Smiles®.

The Schools & Youth initiative encourages school-age youth to celebrate differences and break down barriers. Its efforts allow young people to discover the pathway toward building a more welcoming society for all.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run® raises funds for and awareness of the Special Olympics movement worldwide. Law enforcement officers from 35 countries carry Special Olympics "Flame of Hope" in honor of the Special Olympics athletes.
