All money raised will go to support Special Olympics Ireland’s ongoing programme of sports training and competition for people with an intellectual disability. There are currently 11,000 athletes involved in Special Olympics throughout the island of Ireland. They train in over 400 community based clubs and are supported by a team of 25,000 volunteers.

This year is a particularly important one with the 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games taking place in Athens, Greece in June. 126 athletes from Ireland will compete at these Games, which are the highest level of sports competition in Special Olympics.
