Governor Doug Ducey announced Wednesday $250,000 in funding for Special Olympics Arizona. It will be spent, in part, on engaging people with intellectual disabilities in virtual sports and other activities during the coronavirus pandemic.  

Special Olympics of Arizona is a non-profit serving more than 20 thousand people, with more than 24 thousand volunteers. It operates programs in more than 240 schools across the state. Governor Ducey’s office says the new funding “will ensure athletes continue to engage with communities and participate in important programs,” until in-person activities can resume.
