Description (Brief)
Special Olympics 20th Anniversary clipboard belonging to Eunice Shriver is white with blue printing on the back and front. This was created for the annual conference of 1998 in Reno, Nevada.
From its beginnings as Camp Shriver in Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s backyard, to the first international games in 1968, Special Olympics has been about giving people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in sport. This participation builds confidence, provides emotional support and offers social opportunities for the athletes and their families. With state chapters and a global presence through its World Games, “Special Olympics is the largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities with 5 million athletes in 170 countries worldwide.”
