Eunice Kennedy Shriver believed that “Special Olympics is owned by the future, not the past.” The future is defined by all of us in the Special Olympics Family – athletes, families, volunteers, coaches, staff, and Law Enforcement Officers.
Since the early 80's the Leawood Police Department has been committed to helping Special Olympics and more than 100 local programs and teams across the state. Because of events like the Polar Bear Plunge and Law Enforcement Torch Run, Special Olympics Kansas (SOKS) has touched the lives of 5,580 athletes who train and compete year-round in 22 sports, including Unified Sports®. Thanks to SOKS, athletes have improved physical fitness, acquired new skills, developed lifelong friendships and encouraged widespread community understanding and acceptance.
We invite you to be a part of the future for our Special Olympics athletes.
