#AcceptWithNoExceptions and join our 'Inclusion Revolution'!
Recognizing that there was a need to promote the awareness of the abilities of people with an intellectual or developmental disability participating in sport, the Special Olympics Manitoba Honourary Board took it upon themselves to develop an initiative that addressed this issue.
The concept was born and in 2013, Bill 209 was passed by the Manitoba Legislature proclaiming the second full week in June in each year as Special Olympics Manitoba Awareness Week.
Join in by posting throughout the week and using the hashtags #AcceptWithNoException #ChooseToInclude and #SOMAwarenessWeek. Be sure to tag us @specomanitoba!
