Our Mission

The mission of SONH is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

About SONH

Become an Athlete

Athletes are the heart of Special Olympics. Our athletes are children and adults with intellectual disabilities from across the Granite State. They are finding success, joy and friendship as part of our global community. They’re also having lots of fun!

Make a Difference

Every day we empower athletes to shatter stereotypes and exceed their personal bests on the playing field and in life. But for every Special Olympics champion, there is another who is waiting for a chance to win. Please donate and help us get one more athlete onto the playing field.

Volunteers and athletes.

Get Involved

Volunteers are the backbone of the Special Olympics movement. They are coaches, trainers, officials, event organizers, fundraisers and managers. They can also be unified partners—playing alongside athletes with intellectual disabilities—or fans cheering in the stands.
