There since the beginning, the Knights of Columbus have been stalwart supporters of Special Olympics since its inception over 50 years ago. This year, the Knights of Columbus have launched the Knights of Columbus Virtual Flag Relay for Special Olympics Ontario. For the past two years, we have been unable to conduct the annual Knights of Columbus Flag Relay for Special Olympics due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We invite supporters to visit the website and sign the virtual flag, see the impact of the Knights of Columbus' support, or to make a donation.

Thank you to the Knights of Columbus for your longstanding dedication and support of Special Olympics athletes across the province!
