Challenge Day
Saturday June 10th
Opportunity Acres, Lake City, IA

Volunteers Needed Call 712 464-8961 for more information

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! 

Our Vision

“To be a provider of quality services and supports for people with disabilities by creating an atmosphere that values full participation of all stakeholders.”
