Unified Cup 2022 gets underway!

The Special Olympics Unified Cup 2022 presented by Toyota will show the world how the power of sport builds and shapes a diverse community that unites and empowers people of all abilities, from all backgrounds. In July 2022, Detroit will welcome over 300 footballers from over 20 nations to compete in football (soccer)—the world’s most popular sport. The Special Olympics Unified Cup is slated for 31 July – 6 August, 2022 and Special Olympics Unified Sports® is what makes it uniquely inclusive: Teams are comprised of footballers with and without intellectual disabilities playing together.


Unified Champion City Schools Summit 2022

Also happening in Detroit is the first ever Unified Champion City Schools Summit! This week youth leaders can expect to develop existing leadership skills, network, evaluate and contribute to developing Unified Champion City Schools strategy points. This forum is one of many planned as we continue to bring inspired people together to advance the inclusion movement for all students.
