• Everyone deserves a chance at a happy and purposeful life. Yet people with intellectual disabilities face doubt, barriers, and low expectations. For many, Special Olympics is the only place where they find an opportunity to participate in their communities, develop belief in themselves, and feel like champions.


    For every inspiring Special Olympics athlete in Illinois there are 17 more people waiting for their chance - and so many more around the world. Donate today and help us reach out to one more person who wants to participate in Special Olympics. Click here to make a donation.
