"Let me win, But if I cannot win, Let me be brave in the attempt." — oath of Special Olympics athletes. Presently, more than 1.5 Million developmentally disabled athletes in 160 countries are involved in Special Olympics activities. Less than fifty years ago, developmentally disabled persons often lived in a dark, cloistered, sometimes brutal, world of institutions, sheltered workshops, or family home back bedrooms; objects of sympathy, curiosity, fear. With the Sixties came profound change in public attitudes. As if ideas have wings, Doctor Frank Hayden, a medical professor in Toronto, was discovering in his research that poor physical fitness among people with developmental disabilities had less to do with the disabilities and more to do with life circumstances imposed by the assumptions of authorities and the public. About the same time in the United States, Eunice Kennedy Shriver was seeing clearly beneficial value in enabling athletic opportunities for developmentally disabled children at a summer day camp with which she was involved. Dr. Hayden used formal research to prove his contention; Eunice Shriver used observation and practice.

Today there are over 20,000 Canadians athletes with a mental disability, and the numbers are growing. It is hard to believe that in the 1950s and 1960s there were no fitness programs for them. At that time, the Canadian-born concept of the Special Olympics was introduced by Dr. Frank Hayden , of London, Ontario. Dr. Hayden was always interested in fitness and sports. His research showed him there would be benefits from introducing sports programs for athletes with a mental disability; it would not only enhance their physical development, but also their social and emotional skills. The concept of Special Olympics began in the 1960s when Eunice Kennedy Shriver started a day camp for the mentally challenged. Her experiences taught her that sports training, culminating in Olympic-style athletic competition, enabled people with a mental disability to build self-esteem. In the 1940s, work with mentally disabled athletes was initiated by their parents; they pushed for education for their children. At that time their children were banned from schools. Harry "Red" Foster was a tireless promoter for the disabled. In 1954 he established the Harry E. Foster Foundation.

WATCH SPECIAL OLYMPICS VIDEO Special Olympics History Special Olympics is a Canadian born concept conceived by Dr. Frank Hayden, of London, Ontario.
Dr. Hayden
conceived the idea of a "special" olympics to support his research that individuals with a mental handicap were capable of fitness levels beyond previous thinking.
Special Olympics has grown since the mid-sixties to service over 1.5 million mentally handicapped athletes in more than 160 countries around the world. Special Olympics is a charitable, volunteer driven organization, dedicated to the physical, social and psychological development of people with a mental handicap through positive, successful experiences in sport. Why Special Olympics? Research conducted in Canada and the United States offers strong evidence that physical training and athletic competition for people with a mental handicap not only enhances their physical development, but their social and emotional development as well. The concept of Special Olympics began in the 1960's when Eunice Kennedy Shriver started a day camp for people with mental retardation. She realized through first hand experience that sports and sports training culminating in Olympic-style athletic competition enables people with mental retardation to achieve success, therefore building self -esteem. In 1968, the first international Summer Special Olympics' Games were held at Soldier's Field in Chicago for 1,000 athletes from the United States, Canada and France. Since then, Special Olympics has had a worldwide impact. The Games, based on the modern-Olympic spirit and tradition complete with the torch and medals, truly embodies the words of Olympics' founder Baron Pierre de Coubertin:
