Get Involved

Do you want to know how you can help spread inclusion in your communities and in communities throughout the southeast? Here are some ways that you can do that!


I have placed a donation box placed in Northville High School and Novi Athletics Club, with many more locations to come. You can donate any gently used or new swim gear (swimsuits, caps, or goggles) by just placing them in the box. If you know any locations where a donation box may be placed, please let me know! 

A swim for inclusion is an event where swimmers pledge a certain amount per lap and count their laps, or make a flat donation, then get 30 minutes to 1 hour to swim. The swimmers will turn in their money and the money is donated to the Special Olympics Swim Teams. Our most recent Swim-for-Inclusion I was with Hillside Middle School and Meads Mill Middle School.

Volunteer as an assistant swim coach or lifeguard 

The Special Olympics swim teams in the Southeast do not always have enough coaches for the number of swimmers, or do not have a lifeguard available. One way you can help is by volunteering as an assistant coach or a lifeguard for the team. 

If you are interested in coaching, fill out this form

IF you are interested in lifeguarding, fill out this form


Join Local Unified  programs

Another way to get involved is to join your school districts Unified program, go to Unified club meetings, and join Unified sports. Encourage your school to start a Unified program if it does not already have one.
