「夢」をつなぐチャリティ

(Proposed project)

Fostering the acceptance of athletes
with disabilities

International disabled athlete competitions, in which athletes must overcome their disabilities and bravely take up the challenge of beating their own records and surpassing their peers around the world, are a source of inspiration and courage not just for their families and friends, but also for ordinary spectators. By supporting disabled athletes and providing them with greater public exposure, we aim to foster increased understanding of people with disabilities and their unlimited potential.
*This program will be provided in cooperation with Japan Sports Association for the Disabled, an incorporated foundation.

In January 2013, the Special Olympics Nippon Foundation will send a Japanese team consisting of 85 athletes to compete with intellectually disabled athletes from around the world in the quadrennial Special Olympics World Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. We support the social participation of athletes with intellectual disabilities in the field of sports.
