    About We Run the City

    2020

    We raised over $45K for local Special Olympics athletes during the Virtual We Run the City event.

    2021

    We are back in-person in 2021 at a new location, the campus of California State University in Long Beach!

    About Special Olympics
    • Special Olympics Southern California enriches the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities and their communities through sports, education, and athlete health.
    • Every dollar raised through We Run the City not only provides free year-round sports training and competitions for our athletes, it also gives them empowerment, joy, and improved health. Currently, these benefits have transformed to virtual experiences like the Healthy Lifestyle Challenge and the Virtual Sports Leagues.
    • Special Olympics helps build the self-confidence of a person with intellectual disabilities so they can work and give back to their community. It drives their determination so they can overcome hurdles. It also inspires people to open their hearts to the wider range of human potential and talent, and provides our athletes with an opportunity to shine and live happier, healthier, and longer lives.

    Learn More about SOSC

    Due to on-going concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic and athlete safety, SOSC will limit athlete presentation at all fundraising events. Athletes interested in attending fundraising events as a registered participant must do so in the same manner as any other prospective participant. Fundraising events will follow all local and County COVID-19 protocols.
