Draft an athlete

From February 21 to 23, 2019, the province will come together in Greater Vernon for the 2019 Special Olympics BC Winter Games. Here, nearly 800 athletes with intellectual disabilities will compete with determination and pride in eight winter sports: 5-pin bowling, alpine skiing, cross country skiing, curling, figure skating, floor hockey, snowshoeing, and speed skating.

Competing in Provincial Games is a huge thrill in itself for the athletes, many of whom will have their first opportunities ever to travel with a team, and will experience the joy of challenging themselves to attain and exceed their athletic goals.

You can help give the exciting, empowering, and frequently life-changing experience of Provincial Games by drafting an athlete today.

By donating $500 you will draft a Special Olympics BC athlete and help fund their travel, accommodation, meals, and competition costs. 

Your donation will support the athlete to have the full Games experience, including an athletes' village, opening and closing ceremonies, high-calibre athletic venues, and qualified officials. 

Change a life

The true impact of your donation will be felt by the athlete whose life will be forever changed by the skills, friendships, and confidence they develop through these Games. 

Donor benefits

Draft donors will receive a charitable tax receipt (if eligible) and thank-you postcard from a Special Olympics BC athlete.
