Welcome to Cherokee County Special Olympics

Cherokee County Special Olympics, GA provides year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and
adults with intellectual disabilities. Our goal is to help bring persons with intellectual disabilities into the larger society
under conditions whereby they are accepted, respected, and given the chance to become useful and productive
citizens. When we achieve this goal through our sports program, we demonstrate that Special Olympics has a unique
value: to show the world that every person counts and that every person can be something good when we work

With support from the Cherokee County School District, Hickory Flat Optimist Club,BridgeMill MGA,            
Markel Insurance, Kennesaw State University and the surrounding community, our program has grown to welcome
over 300 athletes.
"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."
