Special Olympics Canada

More than 40,000 athletes with an intellectual disability are registered in Special Olympics programs across Canada. Looking to increase funding, volunteers, and athlete engagement across the country, Special Olympics Canada (SOC) needed to put the organization in a more favourable position to achieve its strategic goals.

Digital Echidna delivered a “shared site” solution, building the site using organic groups with one code base deployed for both the national and participating chapter sites to provide the most value to the organization. The result is a bilingual Drupal 8 product that is fully accessible, responsive, and negates the pain points of brand compliance, navigation, technical function and mobile responsiveness discovered during a pre-redesign assessment. The national site launched first with participating chapters close behind through a single top-level install. Feedback from the chapters during Drupal training was overwhelmingly positive – highlighting the ease of use and attractive interface.
