Special Heroes believes sports are a powerful force. Sports can shift the focus from disability to ability, from isolation to involvement, and from doubt to confidence. We know that participation in sports changes attitudes and changes lives.
Special Heroes uses its partnership with Special Olympics and Major League Baseball's Pitch, Hit, and Run Program to instill confidence and inspire a sense of competition. Our focus is on softball with competition resulting in significant personal achievements.
Special Heroes believes in the power and joy of sport, emphasizing what athletes can do rather than what they cannot do. We stress attention to our athletes' talents and abilities rather than their disabilities. We reward them for reaching their maximum individual potential, which after all is what sports is all about in its purist form. Sports empowers athletes and inspires them to achieve significantly more in not only sports but also in their personal lives.
