Unified Champion Schools

Get Involved with Unified Track

In a partnership between Montana High School Association, Montana’s high schools, and Special Olympics Montana, Unified Track will be included in multiple local track meets throughout the spring. All students practice together, wear the school’s uniform, and compete at track meets.  

Unified Track participants are members of the high school track team with and without an intellectual disability. These athletes will be competing in multiple events including the 100-meter dash, long jump, shot put, and Unified 4×100 meter relay. 

What is a Unified Champion School

Sports are a powerful force. They work towards shifting the focus from disability to ability, and from isolation to involvement.

Special Olympics Unified Champion Schools is education and sports-based programming led through student engagement. With the assistance of funding from Special Olympics North America and the Office of Special Education Programs, Special Olympics Montana and partner schools serve as a force for social inclusion across the state. Our vision is to create a world where people with intellectual disabilities are welcomed in their communities and join with others to learn, work, compete and play, having the same rights and opportunities as others.
