Thank you for your support in donating to my charity of Special Olympics. This will be my FIRST marathon and I am truly excited to be supporting such a great cause! I have recently had the pleasure of being at a local Special Olympics event and witnessed the dedication and determination of each and every athlete. While I am blessed to be full bodied and able minded, these athletes push themselves to train for their events and compete with their entire heart and soul. My journey to the finish line will be dedicated to them. I would be lucky to have half their strength to get across that line, but I will carry their energy in my heart as I seek to complete 26.2 miles on October 13th of 2019.
Any and all donations are appreciated greatly and please follow me on #ericarunschicago AND come out on October 13th!!! T-shirts will be made available for all attendees.
Run with Team Special Olympics Chicago or support someone who is!
We believe connecting people through sports and physical activity are the beginning steps in spreading our mission of inclusion, acceptance, and joy. Together, we can cross the finish line towards more inclusive communities… one runner at a time!
Whether you are a first time marathoner, or avid runner, the Special Olympics Chicago marathon team (Team SOC) is a group assembled of runners of all ages and abilities in support of the #inclusionrevolution.
Team Special Olympics Chicago supports runners in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon through fundraising tips, training assistance, and day of support! We are so grateful for your devoted support to our life changing mission.
Should donors wish to make a donation via check, those contributions can be sent to us and we will credit to your page. Please make sure to include somewhere in the memo section or on a note, the name of the fundraiser you would like to support.
