Randolph County

Welcome to Special Olympics Randolph County! This program is led by two co-coordinators, one from the Asheboro Cultural & Recreation Services department and one from the Randolph-Asheboro YMCA, who bring together members of the community with and without intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics Randolph County is always looking for new volunteers to serve in leadership roles as committee members and coaches, for event volunteers, and of course, as new year-round athletes. To learn more about any of these things, please email

Join us in welcoming new Special Olympics Randolph County Co-Coordinator, Cindy Castle! Read more.
