For decades, Booz Allen has supported the world-class athletes of Special Olympics. This international nonprofit provides year-round training and athletic competitions in a variety of sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to improve their physical fitness, demonstrate courage, and have fun. Our volunteers are deeply invested in the mission of Special Olympics, and have contributed thousands of hours and more than $500,000 in donations since 2003.

We invite supporters in the Wash Metro area to join us at the Special Olympics Virginia Winter Games next weekend! On January 16, Booz Allen employees, friends, and family members will pack the house for the central event of the Virginia Winter Games – FanQuest. FanQuest is a fun, family-friendly way to create a roaring crowd and cheer on our local athletes. The event features contests, fabulous prizes, a Unified basketball game, featuring players with and without disabilities on the same team, and an all-star game featuring the Special Olympics basketball teams from Robinson and Woodson High School.

When you join Booz Allen employees and “Volunteer to Cheer,” you help unite more than 200,000 champions with and without disabilities in nearly 300 K-12 schools and thousands more in community-based programs across Virginia. Sign up today at

The goal of Special Olympics is to help bring all people with special needs into the larger society under conditions whereby they are accepted, respected and given the chance to become active citizens.  If you remember one thing, let it be the motto of Special Olympics, “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
