As three co-workers who love convincing each other to do ridiculous things, it makes sense we would do our first marathons together. When the opportunity to fundraise for Special Olympics Chicago came up, we knew it was meant to be. We are terrified and excited, but at the end of the day grateful to have the chance to help such a great cause. We are running for all of those who benefit from SOC, but are especially excited to run in honor of our friends at St. Mary of Providence-Chicago and family on Team Danny Boy.
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.
