Hi all -
I am running my 6th Marathon this fall. I ran my first marathon for Special Olympics, and I have decided to do it again! But - I can't do it without your help!
The Special Olympics is a great organization - and my family has been positively impacted from their work, My uncle Stan was a participant in the Special Olympics, and he was able to show some of his many talents in the games. I want to ensure everyone has the same opportunity to show their talents.
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!
The Special Olympics Chicago marathon team (Team SOC) is a group assembled of runners of all ages and abilities in support of the Special Olympics Chicago mission. Team Special Olympics Chicago supports runners in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon through fundraising, training, and day of support! We are so grateful for your devoted support to our life changing mission.
