Change Special Olympics to Adaptive Olympics sign now

We resent the name and philosophy of the Special Olympics. Everyone has a right to be competitive and to experience the joy of winning and the disappointment of losing. The term special indicates that the sport must be modified in order to allow people with Downs Syndrome and other mental disabilities to participate. We want the name to be changed to Adaptive Olympics. This term is less condescending towards participants.
