Special Olympics is an activity for students with intellectual disabilities which gives continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, and experience joy. It also provides the opportunity to participate in the sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families and other Special Olympics athletes, as well as the community. Athletes learn the value of teamwork while improving their athletic ability. Cedar Hill ISD athletes exhibit boundless courage and enthusiasm while enjoying the rewards of friendship and teamwork.
Athletes' Oath: "Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me brave in the attempt."
These words were spoken by Roman gladiators as they entered the arena, facing the greatest battle of their lives. Our athletes recite the oath at the Opening Ceremonies of each competition to remind everyone, themselves included, that they are part of a brave tradition and that the goal is to compete with their whole effort and to exhibit bravery by pushing themselves to even greater heights.
