WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP !
As you may or may not know, Special Olympics is funded solely by donations and contributions from community organizations, businesses and individuals.
Special Olympics by-laws prohibit charging athletes for any portions of their Special Olympics experience: Uniforms, housing, meals, ribbons, medals, equipment, etc, Special Olympic by-laws also prohibit charging any admission cost for any competition. You can see that Special Olympics does not generate any revenue from athlete participation. This is to ensure that no athlete is left out of training or competition due to their socio-economic standing.
