We are proud to pledge our support for inclusion by partnering with the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games right here in Seattle on July 1-6.
This summer, more than 4,000 athletes and coaches, representing 50 state programs and the District of Columbia, along with the support of tens of thousands of volunteers and spectators, will compete for gold in 14 Olympic-type team and individual sports.
"The 2018 Special Olympics USA Games will showcase the abilities of athletes with intellectual disabilities, promote the ideals of acceptance and inclusion through sport, and celebrate the transformative power of Special Olympics".
- Beth Knox, President and CEO, 2018 Special Olympics
How does Lyft fit in to all of this? We plan to get you around with reliable rides to and from each event so you can worry less about parking and focus all your attention on cheering as loud as possible. To make getting around even easier, each of the event venues will have a designated pickup and drop-off area for your ride. Click here for a list of venues.
Don’t miss our Pickup area at the University of Washington with complementary water, a free carnival game, and more!
Additionally, using the code USAGAMES, you will get 15% off your ride to or from any of the games.
