Join us for a virtual round of golf
to get Special Olympics athletes in the game


We unfortunately had to cancel our biggest fundraiser, our annual Golf Classic, this year due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. As this event held a substantial role in providing funding for our programs, we are choosing to hold a virtual event in hopes our community will come together through the joy of sport and camaraderie to support our athletes for their upcoming season.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Special Olympics Calgary (SOC) is a volunteer driven registered charity whose mission is to enrich the lives of Albertans with an intellectually disability through sport. Special Olympics is more than just sports, and a one time event, we are in the community every day of the year, providing a combination of fun, fitness and social activity that helps build the confidence and life skills of our athletes. SOC has over 800 athletes with support and coaching from 300+ volunteers, participating in 21 different summer and winter sports.
 
SOC relies on the generosity of individuals, groups corporations and special events to survive as we receive no direct government funding to sustain our operations. 76% of our annual operating budget is raised through generous donations right here in Calgary. Currently, we require approximately $750,000 dollars to cover the costs associated with programming. Proceeds from the Golf Classic will directly help us achieve this goal.
 
 
 
Birdies For Kids SCC

We are proud to be a charity of the Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink program. All donations made through their site will be matched up to 50%.
