National Volunteer Week



2020 National Volunteer Week is April 19-25

Volunteers are essential to the success of Special Olympics Kansas. From coaching our athletes, assisting at sports competitions, Healthy Athletes events, or helping out at a fundraiser, our volunteers do it all. We owe so much to the thousands of people across Kansas who find the time to make the world a better place. Thank you to all volunteers who have been a part of Special Olympics Kansas!

We try to recognize our volunteer’s passion and commitment each day, but we think it’s important for us to take this week to let them know how much they are the backbone of Special Olympics!

Be sure you celebrate and thank a volunteer who is providing opportunities of success in sport and health for people with intellectual disabilities!


Every volunteer has made an impact at our events and with athletes and their families, no matter how big or small. To kick off National Volunteer Week, we want to show our appreciation for our volunteers by highlighting you on our page!

Please click on the button below to fill out our volunteer spotlight form and get the chance to be one of five volunteers featured on our page.

By filling out the form, you will also automatically be entered to win our Special Olympics Kansas Prize Package, filled with all sorts of prizes ranging from SOKS gear to autographed items from your favorite Kansas professional athletes.

Make sure to share this link to your friends and family that have volunteered with SOKS!
