About the ViVil (WeWant) Games, which is one of her eight patronages: Is the country's largest multi-sports event for people with Intellectual disabilities, which takes place every year at Nadderud stadium in Bærum (a neighbouring municipality of Oslo), where they compete in football (soccer), handball, boccia, swimming and athletics. The games were started in 1979 (yes, as mentioned in the above post, they celebrates their 40th anniversary this year) by Vivil IL (Norway's largest sports team within this field, founded in 1978) and last for three days with participants from all over the country. Another thing to mention is that no winners are named during the individual competitions, where everyone receives equal prizes/diplomas. However, that is not the case in the team sports, where the winning team is awarded with a cup.

And to those who wonder how it's funded?
The team: Through support from the state, sponsors, an annual membership-fee and volunteerism.
The games: Through its own support from the state, sponsors, start-fees and volunteerism. (Yes, separated from that given to the team.)
