(This amendment provides $150,000 the first year and $150,000 the second year from the general fund to Special Olympics Virginia to expand their statewide efforts to reach and enroll more citizens with intellectual disabilities into the program, and to continue to provide the organization's ever expanding opportunities to those already enrolled. The ultimate goal of Special Olympics Virginia is to help persons with intellectual disabilities participate as productive and respected members of society at large, by offering them a fair opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills and talents through sports training competition, and by increasing the public's awareness of their capabilities and needs.)
