Student Volunteers for Special Olympics is a student organization made up of students volunteering their time to help individuals with a wide range of disabilities participate in competitive sports within the Ithaca Community to improve their quality of life.
This student organization was founded when president Katie Deitz was a freshman in 2011. When Katie went to a “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign focused around ending stigmas and difficult dialogue surrounding those with disabilities, she knew she found something in which she was interested. When the student organization was formed, the members began attending sporting practices, acting as assistant coaches in a variety of different sports including basketball and swimming. Now, three years later, the club has grown and a family has been formed between the athletes and the volunteers.
