Special Olympics

Downeast Horizons fully supports and funds Special Olympics Activities for our athletes! Individuals need to be at least eight years old and identified as having a cognitive delay, or a developmental disability, that is, functional limitations in both general learning and adaptive skills.

Athletes who participate, gain opportunities  to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience success, and participate with other Special Olympians.

It is through the generosity of many that the majority of the expenses associated with organizing, transporting, lodging and coaching of our Olympians occurs.

Downeast Horizons Supports These Special Olympic Activities:

  • DEHI Bowling Tournament
  • DEHI Bocce Ball Tournament
  • Track & Field
  • Alpine Skiing
  • Snowshoeing
  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Swimming
