Club UNIFY is dedicated to cheering on Special Olympics athletes, especially those in our school and schools nearby, and getting other students involved as well. Our inclusive club will introduce students to other students with different abilities. We will meet Special Olympics athletes and discover how much we all have in common. Our ultimate goal is to create an atmosphere of acceptance and respect at our school and in our community. You probably know that Special Olympics trains people with intellectual disabilities to compete in Olympicstyle sports. Training and competing in sports helps people find joy, acceptance, and success. They gain confidence and are prepared for new challenges. Getting to know and support a person with an intellectual disability can enrich the lives of all students and teach them valuable lessons about acceptance, inclusion, and respect. Club UNIFY is more than a booster club—it’s a club that teaches students lifelong lessons about the right way to treat other people and helps them spread the message of acceptance throughout their school.
