Highlights from Special Olympics Southern California's 22nd annual Pier del Sol at the #SantaMonicaPier on Sunday, October 14, 2018.

Pier del Sol is a fun-filled fundraiser for the entire family that benefits more than 17,000 athletes of the Special Olympics Southern California.

The guests enjoyed unlimited rides and games at Pacific Park, a VIP outdoor brunch with over 36 of Greater L.A.'s top restaurants and much more! Maria Shriver and Bobby Shriver are the honorary chairs.

Founded in 1969 by Olympic decathlon gold medalist Rafer Johnson, Special Olympics Southern California serves children and adults with intellectual disabilities who participate in year-round sports training and competition. Participation develops improved physical fitness and motor skills and greater self-confidence in our athletes.

Special Olympics has become the world’s largest movement dedicated to promoting respect, acceptance, inclusion, and human dignity for people with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics programs are offered at no cost to the athletes and their families. #PierdelSol #WeAreSOSC#SpecialOlympics #cheersto50
