"Global Day of Inclusion” (July 21/18)

On Saturday July 21/18, Special Olympics Ontario took part in the first ever "Global Day of Inclusion”, a celebration of Special Olympics’ 50th anniversary and an initiative aimed at creating a world where all people are recognized and included.   It’s hoped that, together, we can break down barriers and empower Canada’s more than 800,000 individuals with an intellectual disability to reach their full potential.

If you visited one of our local Tim Hortons stores, bought a Special Olympics donut and posted to social media (with the hashtag #ChooseToInclude, tagging @SOOntario on Twitter or @SpecialOlympicsOntario on Facebook or Instagram) to show you believe in the power of inclusion.   Special thanks to Tim Hortons for showcasing their support of the Special Olympics’ movement – 50 years of inclusiveness, look how far we’ve come!
