Plan your fall health screenings now

As Special Olympics athletes turn their attention to fall sports, they also need to begin to focus on better health. Between MedFests and Healthy Athletes screenings, Special Olympics North Carolina has many resources to get athletes healthier off the field of play. Local programs interested in holding fall health events or medical professionals interested in donating their time as a volunteer should contact Ellen Fahey.  More than 900 health screenings were conducted at the 2018 Special Olympics North Carolina Summer Games.

Volunteer Opportunities

Special Olympics North Carolina needs help throughout the year in our office and warehouse.  We handle data entry for newly registered athletes and volunteers.  We maintain a large warehouse with almost everything that you need for a sports event and use various items throughout the year so we need volunteers to keep it all in order.  Please signup online or email with questions.  We welcome groups of 4 or 5 to join us as well.

Each local program has a local committee that assists the Local Program Coordinator in all of their program needs. Click here to see what opportunities are available or visit your local program's page.

Join us at our largest fundraiser of the year. We need volunteers to work in a variety of capacities while up to 100 individual rappel down the Wells Fargo building in downtown Raleigh. Please select a shift where you can work the entire time. We will provide a T-Shirt and for those working 6 hours or more we will also provide a meal.

Register online now!
