Special Olympics Los Angeles Lions Club of Whittier

 The SOLA Lions Club supports Special Olympics athletes for who they are:  CHAMPIONS.  They are champions for stepping out on the track, field, pool, or court and competing, for putting smiles on others' faces, changing attitudes and teaching sensitivity, and for building a more accepting world for everyone. 


Over 50 members of our Club have the opportunity to:

  • Empower persons with intellectual disabilities and their families.
  • Transform lives.
  • Show the world the skills and talents of a group often overlooked in today's society.
  • Volunteer and work with a great organization.

The SOLA Lions Club was given its Charter on March 24, 2009, and had its Charter Installation on May 4, 2009, with International Lions Club President Al Brandel present. SOLA is the second Lions Club in the world to serve the athletes of Special Olympics.

SOLA is a Specialty Lions Club that serves Special Olympics only.  SOLA is the second Lions Club in the world to serve the athletes of Special Olympics.
