Sponsorship

Working Together to Create Change

Special Olympics Ontario has grown beyond being just a charitable organization, thanks to the help of many dedicated organizations and individuals. As a place of opportunity for those with intellectual disabilities, we strive to develop and expand partnerships and touchpoints that enable us to make a difference in the lives of these individuals. 

Corporations who partner with Special Olympics Ontario share our brand values of respect, inclusivity, and inspiration. Through the eyes of our supporters, our brand is recognized as  positive, loyal, respectful, and good willed.

As a trusted organization, we reach many communities while establishing new networks that create a lasting positive impact. Sponsorship is imperative to the success of the movement, allowing us to reach our goals by working together.


The 2020 Provincial Spring Games is more than an event, it is a unique experience for athletes from across Ontario with intellectual disabilities to showcase their hard work and dedication through sport.

This three-day event is attended by more than 2,500 athletes, spectators, coaches, mission staff, and hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers.

Fully equipped sporting venues and an athlete village will be located throughout Waterloo Region, resulting in an estimated economic boost of more than one million dollars for the region.


MESSAGE FROM THE HONOURARY CO-CHAIRS

On behalf of the Region of Waterloo and the Waterloo Regional Police Service, we are honoured to be hosting the 2020 Special Olympics Ontario Spring Games. 

This event is expected to bring more than 2,500 athletes, coaches, staff, volunteers, and spectators to our Region to celebrate the achievements and talents of Special Olympics athletes – and what better place for that to happen than right here in Waterloo Region!

Special Olympics is an international organization that gives visibility to people with intellectual disabilities and we are thrilled to support these Games and help these incredible athletes achieve their dreams.

These Games not only provide an opportunity for our community to showcase our Region’s great hospitality, but a chance for us to witness firsthand that being a champion is more about spirit than it is about strength. It’s about working hard and working together to gain an invaluable experience that extends well beyond an individual sport. It’s about showing the world that individuals with intellectual disabilities can – and will – achieve great things. 

We look forward to welcoming the athletes, their families, and friends to our great Region next spring. Together, we can Go Beyond and make these the best Games in history!
