    Special Olympics Iowa (SOIA) is a nonprofit organization that serves athletes with intellectual disabilities in all 99 counties of the state. Iowa has 11 areas throughout the state that serves nearly 11,000 athletes, participants and Unified Sports Partners annually.

    Since 1968, Special Olympics Iowa has been serving the needs of children and adults with intellectual disabilities by providing sports training and competition in 23 Olympic-type sports. These programs would not be possible without the generous support of more than 15,000 volunteers.
