Ambassador Spotlight: Sarah Ribeiro of Special Olympics Texas

Posted on 10/09/2020 by Austin Chamber

  • Sarah Ribeiro of Special Olympics Texas (pictured second from top left in white) is passionate about serving her community both through her work as a development director and through her role as a Chamber Ambassador.

    Sarah demonstrates her passion for helping the community through the work she does every day at SOTX. Her fellow Ambassadors also appreciate the energy she brings to her involvement in the Chamber:

"Sarah is deeply committed to welcoming new members and helping them to get the most from their membership," says Britney Box, senior customer success manager at the Chamber, "and that energy carries through in everything she does."

Though in-person events have been postponed for SOTX, they are still hosting a number of events and programs virtually. Their next major event in Austin is their annual Breakfast with Champions on October 23rd. Breakfast with Champions is a morning of learning, inspiration, awareness, and making a difference in the lives of Special Olympic Texas athletes.

  • Another exciting way that Special Olympics Texas is keeping their athletes connected is through their S.O. Connected at-home virtual program. This program features full days of at-home challenges, live online events, and much more. All of this is hosted by volunteers who create content around entertainment, nutrition, exercise, and even gaming. Volunteer-created videos include easy, healthy recipes, cardio workouts, and easy DIYs. If you’re interested in creating your own content to share with S.O. Connected, please contact Jalen Lewis at
