About

Human R.A.C.E. is a platform that gives a voice to athletes with intellectual disabilities and the community around them.

Powered by Special Olympics Asia Pacific, Human R.A.C.E provides an exclusive first-person insight into the daily lives and unique perspectives of athletes, coaches, family members, and volunteers who work with people with intellectual disabilities. We tell authentic stories to help people understand the challenges and discrimination faced by one of the world’s most socially isolated, under-served and stigmatized populations.

Human R.A.C.E. is our engine to drive Respect, Acceptance, Change, and Equality for people with intellectual disabilities.

Hear our voices. Feel our fears. Share our joy as we race to the finish line. Join us in celebrating the Human R.A.C.E.
