Special Olympics Australia Fundraising Events

Fundraising Events

Special Olympics fundraising events are always fun and provide an opportunity to meet Special Olympics athletes and hear their stories of courage, determination and personal achievement.

In 2016, we have a full calendar of events that will help us raise the money needed to provide quality sports programs that transform the lives of people with an intellectual disability. These events attract members of the corporate community as well as private individuals. So they are a great way to extend your personal or business network.

Join us at a Special Olympics Australia fundraising event! In 2016 our events spread across Australia as we raise funds to provide more opportunities for people with an intellectual disability to play sport. Special Olympics events provide the opportunity to network, meet new people, celebrate with friends or colleagues, laugh, dance and hear inspiring stories from our athletes. To see which event you would like to attend, find a date or event that suits you below. We hope to see you at a Special Olympics Australia fundraising event soon!
