About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
ASOTV
Purpose:
As Aggie Special Olympics Texas Volunteers we will obtain and imitate the vision and mission of Special Olympics Texas, an international nonprofit organization that is "dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition." Through volunteering at various local and state-wide events ASOTV will strive to build bonds with the Special Olympics Athletes and instill in them the Aggie Spirit of service and diversity. Along with helping facilitate and coordinate various events, ASOTV will also serve Special Olympics Texas in managing and raising funds so that this rewarding organization may continue to support their athletes who strive to live by the Athlete Oath, "Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."
