Become a Volunteer!

Are you looking for a way to give back and get a boost at the same time? Do you need to be inspired?

Getting involved with Special Olympics is about transforming lives, including your own. It's about making your community and neighborhood a more welcoming and accepting place. Mostly, it's about creating lifelong friendships and a new way of thinking about others – rewards of immeasurable value.

Special Olympics would not exist today - and could not have been created – without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of its diverse volunteers.

Participate once, be inspired forever.

Volunteers Needed for the Dream Ride!

After twelve years and over $1,725,000 in fundraising, Dream Ride is back and better than ever. Since 2001, this special event has brought motorcycle riders and car enthusiasts together to celebrate the achievements of Special Olympics athletes, as well as help raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause. The enthusiasm and generosity of our sponsors, volunteers and participants has helped us expand our reach. Saturday August 24, 2013 and Sunday August 25, 2013 will be an amazing day filled with fun, food, music, motors, and inspiration.

The 2013 event is more than a charity ride for motorcycles and a show for cars; it's a fabulous opportunity to volunteer, help out a good cause and have a great time while you are doing it! We hope you can join us for this incredible day! Please email Katie Femiak for more details at
