In November 2019, Special Olympics Missouri announced a statewide partnership with the University of Missouri System and MU Health. This partnership opens up countless opportunities between our organization and UM System's and MU Health's resources, employees and students.

Whether it's via recruiting personal trainers for our health & wellness program, mentors and instructors for our Athlete Leadership program, volunteers for our year-round sports training and competition program or anything in between, this partnership will make a world of difference for our organization and, most importantly, the thousands of people with intellectual disabilities and their families that we serve on a daily basis.

If you're a UM System employee or student looking to volunteer at an event near you, please click here. If you're wanting to contact your local program to get even more involved, click here.

If you're looking for more information on our call-to-action at the press conference, joining the 2020 Polar Plunge, click here!

We look forward to our first full year of partnership in 2020!
