Our Purpose

Special Olympics Project UNIFY® is an education-based program that uses the sports and education initiatives of Special Olympics to activate youth to promote school communities where all young people are agents of change – fostering respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. But it is much more.


The club participates in many events at the school and in the community.  At Southwest, our club members are buddies to Special Olympics athletes for bowling, swimming, basketball and track and field.  In March, club members conduct an annual r-word rally to promote the exclusion of the use of the r word in the school and community.  Our biggest event at SW is hosting the Spring games.  Club members fundraise and plan the Spring games that will take place at the school in April.  We provide buddies for every school in the county for this event as well.  We try to create an environment of inclusion and acceptance for every person with special needs at the school.
