Special Olympics Florida – Duval County

June 18 - July 01

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

The ultimate objective of Special Olympics Florida is to help people with intellectual disabilities participate as productive and respected members of society at large, by offering them a fair opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills and talents through sports training and competition, and by increasing the public’s awareness of their capabilities and needs.

Special Olympics Florida, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Population Served:


Special Olympics Florida serves over 44,400 athletes and offers training and competition in a variety of team and individual sports, with the help of over 31,000 dedicated coaches and volunteers statewide.

Special Olympics athletes are given opportunities to participate without regard to economic, demographic, religious, or social factors. Neither athletes nor parents are charged a fee to participate in the program, and activities exist for those of all ability levels, from the highly functioning to the severely challenged. Anyone can participate in Special Olympics if they meet the eligibility criteria of having intellectual disabilities or a similar developmental disability.

Intellectual disability does not discriminate. Athletes who participate in Special Olympics come in all ages, ethnicities, and economic and social backgrounds. However, a significant number of athletes live in urban areas and come from lower socioeconomic groups. In addition, the vast majority of school-aged children with intellectual disabilities who attend public schools receive free or reduced lunch, placing them in the at-risk demographic.

    Caleb

    11 yrs old

Caleb Prewitt is eleven years old, born and raised in Jacksonville FL. We were surprised at birth with his Down syndrome diagnosis, but wouldn't change a thing now. He has a sister, a step-brother and step-sister who are all much older! Caleb is a student, athlete and advocate! He will "graduate" this week from Elementary school and head to Intermediate classes in the fall. Caleb has made trips to advocate for himself and others to both our state and national capitols. He loves to meet new people and loves to travel too. He and his dad enjoy working together in the kitchen and will soon hit the stage with a "Cooking with Caleb" event this fall here in Jacksonville with the Southern Women's Show. He's done some modeling, and is a Brand Representative for Jonas Paul Eyewear and JakeMax Apparel. He is also an ambassador for both AbleFinder and SaveDownSyndrome. He loves sports and participates in eight Special Olympics sports throughout the year, as well as Challenger League baseball and TOPSsoccer. We began participating with Special Olympics when he was just four with their Young Athlete's Program, which gave him the tools for the sports-side when he turned eight. His favorite sport is Bowling, followed by Equestrian. We are excited to help raise some funds for our local SOFL program with this partnership with Paperclouds Apparel!
