Unique to Iowa, Challenge Days are a one-day event designed
specifically for the severe and profound population of Iowa as well as our aging
population. Because of the need to offer more activities for these individuals,
it has been a goal of Special Olympics Iowa to expand on our motor skills
programs. Challenge Days introduce team
sports adapted for the severe and profound as well as those who are unable to
participate in the traditional Special Olympics programs. Sports, such as ball
darts, balloon volleyball, dice bowling, ramp bowling and wheelchair basketball
are modified to allow youth and adults to participate in a team or as an individual.
Volunteers and switch activated equipment
are on site to assist the athletes as they participate in each event. If you'd like to volunteer please call 712-464-8961!
