Special Olympics uses the transformative power of sports to show that when we embrace inclusion there is no limit to what we can achieve together.
Bank of America has partnered with Special Olympics for over 40 years, supporting leadership and empowerment on the field and providing opportunities for economic advancement off the field. It’s rewarding to witness the positive impact on so many individuals and their families. It’s also inspiring to see the barriers and odds that are overcome every day.
