SHINE AS ONE: A Rewarding Week for Special Olympics Michigan Athletes at 2022 USA Summer Games

Commitment to Coaching: SOMI Volunteer Recognized Nationally  

“I was overwhelmed and a little in shock,” said Special Olympics Michigan (SOMI) Coach, Allison Wonch, when she was awarded the Special Olympics North America (SONA) Outstanding Coach Award this month. “I am so thankful for the families and school community who continue to support Special Olympics for our athletes; giving them this great opportunity to thrive.”

What We Do

Special Olympics Michigan provides year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Athletes develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy while participating in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship among their families, Special Olympics athletes and the community. The athletes achieve their dreams with the support of caring volunteers, coaches, family members and staff. Donations from Michigan citizens and businesses provide funding for the program.
