Families are the No. 1 fans of our Special Olympics athletes. They give the type of love, support and encouragement that no one else can. Special Olympics Samoa is a support network that brings families together in a caring, positive way — and that makes the cheers for our athletes even louder.
Families with members who have an intellectual (learning) disability are like other families; however, having a family member with special needs can sometimes introduce new and different challenges for families. Getting involved with Special Olympics Samoa gives families a chance to meet other families who have undergone similar challenges.
