Be the “Team behind the Team” for America’s Paralympians

Research shows that daily physical activity enhances not only an individual's self-esteem and peer relationships, it also results in increased achievement, better overall health and higher quality of life. However, despite these findings, most individuals with physical disabilities do not have the opportunity to participate in any regular sports activity.  

The United States Olympic Committee and its U.S. Paralympics division not only help support sporting programs for Americans with physical disabilities, they help make Olympic journeys possible through education, sports programs and partnerships with community organizations, medical facilities and government agencies.  

Sign the pledge and join us today as a member of the “Team behind the Team” – standing with the U.S. Olympic Committee in support of increased availability of Paralympic sport programs for Americans with physical disabilities in communities across the country. In return, the U.S. Olympic Committee offers Team USA news and updates, access to athlete stories, Olympic Games viewer's guides, and much more.
