Making Strides for Special Kids 2021

Making Strides for Special Kids 2021 has Gone VIRTUAL!

Run or walk or ride between Saturday , September 18 and Sunday, September 26, 2021

Anytime ~ Anywhere!

We are going virtual! Our number one priority is to keep you safe and to keep our students safe, healthy and in school! Due to the pandemic and the rising numbers we have made the decision to have the event virtually! Don't live in Lake County, on vacation, or not ready to be in-person - run, walk, or ride where you are! Everyone can participate in the event and make  a huge impact virtually. 

This unprecedented global pandemic has affected much more than this event as our students and their families are continuing to face significant challenges this year. Reduced access to school facilities for educational services, specialized learning equipment, and even food have created unmet needs for many students that are nothing short of unimaginable. The needs of SEDOL families continues to be greater than they’ve ever been and we need your help more than we ever have.

Please join us for this wonderful event. You can join on your own, or even better, start a team and
recruit your friends. Your power to make a difference in the lives of our special needs children is
unmatched. As a fundraiser and/or team leader you can even designate where your money goes. For
example, you can choose for the funds you raise to go toward adaptive equipment (voice output
devices, adaptive trikes, etc.), class projects such as the backpack program for children whose
families need food on weekends, camp scholarships, emergency funds for families, or a number of
additional specific needs.

For more information about the event, please visit the About Our Event tab above. 

Packet Pickup Required - Packet Pickup is on Thursday, September 16 from 12:00 noon - 7:00 p.m. at The Fitness Pursuit, located at 1186 East Washington Street in Grayslake
