Sponsorship Opportunities

The Iredell County program serves over 450 athletes in our community every year in a wide variety of sports such as alpine skiing, basketball, golf, swimming, track & field, bocce, cheerleading and bowling. The cost for providing this program is in excess of $20,000 per year. Special Olympics receives no government funding and is not a United Way agency. We rely fully on contributions from the local community as well as small fundraisers. With your support, we will be able to continue to offer this worthwhile program for the 2019-2020 year. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution in support of Special Olympics Athletes of Iredell County. Since athletes are never charged a fee to train or compete, your support is greatly needed. Remember that even if each civic group and business contributed just $25 it would make a world of difference. You can make your contribution by check, money order, or in kind services. Please mail donations to Special Olympics Iredell County, PO Box 1111, Statesville, NC 28687. All donors will be recognized at Iredell County's Special Olympics Spring Games in May.

We currently offer opportunities in several sports including:

  • Bowling
  • Basketball Skills
  • Track and Field/Athletics
  • Golf
  • Alpine Skiing
  • Aquatics
  • Bocce
  • Cheerleading
