We are pleased to announce our selected charity for the 2022 Prince Edward Island Open: Special Olympics Prince Edward Island.

 

Special Olympics PEI is dedicated to enriching the lives of Islanders with an intellectual disability through sport. They use the medium of sport to assist persons with an intellectual disability to become all that they can be - physically, mentally, socially, emotionally - and to become accepted, respected, and productive members of society. The vision of Special Olympics PEI is that sport will open hearts and minds towards people with an intellectual disability and create inclusive communities across PEI.

Special Olympics PEI became an accredited chapter of Canadian Special Olympics in 1982. During that time, Special Olympic activities on PEI were coordinated though the Recreation and Sports Association for the Disabled (RSAD). In 1987, Special Olympics PEI stepped from under the RSAD umbrella and became its own incorporated, charitable organization. Since its inception in 1982, Special Olympics PEI has grown steadily and today there are over 660 registered athletes who participate in approximately 100  recreation and sport programs across the province. These programs are supported by more than 120 coaches and volunteers.
