Take A Survey and Help Shape the Future of Special Olympics

Special Olympics invites athletes, coaches, volunteers, staff, family members and supporters to take a survey to measure how the Special Olympics mission is being fulfilled worldwide. Take part in the survey to give your opinion about what Special Olympics is doing right and what must be improved. The survey asks questions about current work and gives everyone a chance to suggest changes and new approaches. You can take the survey without using your name. It’s available as an online survey and as a downloadable PDF. The PDF can be emailed in, or you can print it to fax or mail it. Learn more at the link below.
