(This amendment provides $100,000 the first year, in addition to the $100,000 included in the second year of the introduced budget, 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.)
