About Us

Our vision is an inclusive world for all, driven by the power of sport, through which people with intellectual disabilities live active, healthy, and fulfilling lives.

Our Mission
Our mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

In 1970 not long after the first International Special Olympics Summer Games, Special Olympics Montana was founded. The movement began with SOMT hosting its first-ever State Summer Games in Billings, MT for around 400 athletes. In those 50 years, the organization has grown to serve over 3,000 athletes statewide offer 13 sports and over 25 competitions year-round.

Special Olympics changes attitudes and behaviors through sport. We do it by showcasing the gifts and talents of people with ID, creating friendships and demonstrating the best of the human spirit.
