Tailgate for Teammates

Tailgate for Teammates is an evening celebrating Special Olympics Iowa athletes, Unified partners, and their supporters — an event full of enthusiasm, team spirit, and pride. Guests will feast on great tailgate cuisine, bid for auction prizes, and cheer on the inspiring and talented athletes participating in upcoming Special Olympics Iowa events. What makes this event so special is the opportunity to meet the very athletes and Unified partners you are supporting. You’ll hear their inspiring stories and see first-hand how Special Olympics Iowa impacts their lives.

The money raised at this event helps Special Olympics Iowa serve 14,500+ athletes and Unified partners — providing year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic type sports. But we can’t do it without you! When you participate in Tailgate for Teammates, you will ensure our athletes and Unified partners have continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other athletes, and the community.
