Let's Make a Difference

Lowcountry of South Carolina

Our mission

To enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing Special Olympics sports and recreation as well as programs which facilitate social interaction.  We believe everyone in our community deserves the opportunity to engage in a healthy, active lifestyle.


SOAR is committed to supporting people with disabilities in their pursuit to live, play, and participate in the community.  We do so by partnering with individuals, families, and local agencies to explore recreation and social opportunities.


Special Recreation organizes and oversees Special Olympic programs which include: tennis, equestrian, bowling, swimming, bocce and cheerleading.  This new program will also be developing opportunities for social activities after school, on weekends and throughout the summer for special needs people of all ages.



Although SOAR is not directly involved in all occasions below, we recognize these events and organizations because they are important for our community and impact our athletes.
