COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Special Olympics Missouri is raising funds as it considers moving its headquarters and athletic training facility to a new site in Columbia.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports if the project is successful, the Training for Life Campus would be the first statewide athletic training campus for people with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics Missouri has not made a decision but is considering building at the Central Missouri Events Center at the Boone County fairground. It also would move its headquarters from Jefferson City.

The Missouri Development Finance Board approved a tax-incentive program that will allow donors to use $1.75 million in tax credits toward the project.

The capital campaign’s goal is $12.5 million. Supporters envision a facility for year-round training and health screenings for about 17,000 athletes, coaches and volunteers.
