Outer Banks Special Olympics
Facilitated by Dare County, the Special Olympics goal is to improve the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities through sport, by empowering them both on and off the field of play and bringing them into the larger society where they are respected and accepted.
Special Olympics Dare County is a volunteer-driven organization. Special Olympics athletes in Dare County are never charged a fee to compete. Any person with developmental or cognitive disabilities or a combination of the two, ages 8 and up may become a Special Olympic athlete. Developing a program for young athletes 7 and under is a future goal.

Wounded Warriors in Action
Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) John J. McDaniel founded Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation in 2007 and established its corporate headquarters in Apollo Beach, Florida. A retired Army officer, John felt that his service to the nation was not yet finished. He started as a concerned citizen taking a few Wounded Warriors out on hunting and fishing trips, but quickly saw that the need for this kind of healing was greater than he could support on his own. In 2009 WWIA was granted 501(c)(3) nonprofit status and has been changing the lives of American Heroes and American Sportsmen and women across the country ever since.
The mission statement of Wounded Warriers in Action is “To serve our Nation’s combat wounded Purple Heart recipients by providing world-class outdoor sporting activities as a means to recognize and honor their sacrifice, encourage independence and connections with communities, and promote healing and wellness through camaraderie and a shared passion for the outdoors.”
Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation now serves over 200 Purple Heart Recipients each year on over 40 events across North America.
