Move. Share. Inspire

Support Special Olympics Northern California’s first-ever virtual fundraiser, Journey To Summer Games, on Saturday, June 27th. The event encourages communities to stay active and virtually connected while raising critical funds for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Choose how you move and exercise, track how far you go, and submit your distance. How far can all participants “travel” together in the name of Special Olympics athletes? We’ll find out on June 27th! 

Opening Ceremony is 9am.  Be on the look out for an email that includes the zoom link.  If you don't receive it, email [email protected] for the link. 

How it works

Registration fee: $20
Join us for our live ceremony at on June 27th with a link that will be emailed to you next week.  Choose how you want to move (walk, run, bike, Peleton, roller blade, etc.), share pictures of your journey and screenshots of the distance you’ve traveled on social, and tag: @SONorCal (FB, Twitter) or @specialolympicsnca (Instagram) and use the hashtag: #BetterTogether. 

What you receive

*An athlete playlist so you can rock out while tracking your distance
*An invite to our virtual Opening Ceremony to get you motivated.
*Inspirational messages from Special Olympics Northern California athletes.

Dunkin’ would like to show their support by giving every Journey to Summer Games participant (up to 100 participants) a $10 gift card. Keep an eye out for an email that contains more information.

Go the Extra Mile

We hope you will consider raising additional funds for our amazing athletes.  When you register, a fundraising page is automatically created for you.  You can send the link to your page to your family, co-workers and friends so they can make a donation to support your fundraising efforts.  You will also have the opportunity to add your fundraising page to your Facebook and donations made through Facebook will automatically roll to your fundraising page.

The top individual and team fundraisers will get a virtual "thank you" from one of our athletes and a shout out on our social media outlets.
