TheSpecial Olympics is a global organisation that changes lives by promoting understanding, acceptance and inclusion among people with and without intellectual disabilities. It was founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver to provide people with intellectual disabilities continuing opportunities to realise their potential, develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy and friendship.
The logo of the Special Olympics depicts five figures in a unifying circle to symbolise its global presence. The figures who each have six arms.

The straight arms symbolise a greater equality and outreach while the raised
arms represent joy and the realisation of ultimate goals.
