We are very pleased to announce that the director of the “Go Active Show” Ms. Maria Ptak has become a member of the national Special Olympic Games Poland committee.

Special Olympic Games are one of the three pillars of the Olympic movement in the world dedicated to people with intellectual disabilities. They associate nearly 5 million athletes representing 32 sports disciplines from over 170 countries.

Poland was the first country in Central and Eastern Europe in which the Special Olympic Games movement began operations in the early ’80s. About 1.2 million people with intellectual disabilities live in our country. One of the Special Olympic Games missions is to convince all Poles that enabling this group to join everyday life in the society brings great benefits to both parties.
