Global Messengers are Special Olympics athletes who help spread the message and vision of the movement as well as the benefits they have gained by participating in Special Olympics. As leaders and message-bearers of the movement, Global Messengers communicate the powerful declarations of hope, acceptance, dignity and courage of Special Olympics athletes around the world. Only athletes can effectively relate the impact that the movement has had on their lives and the lives of their families.
Athletes who have gone through Global Messenger training act as spokespeople for Special Olympics Programs around the world. Every two years, 12 athletes are selected to train and serve as International Global Messengers, representing the global Special Olympics movement. The International Global Messengers come from around the world, reflecting the scope and reach of the movement.
Our Global Messengers are eager to put their public speaking skills to use! Click on a picture below to download a Profile and Contact Information for each Global Messenger.
