Eileen in...You lean in!

I can’t wait to be Freezin’ for a Reason for the 2nd year in a row and jump in Lake Michigan for the Polar Plunge on March 1st, which benefits Special Olympics Chicago.

As many of you know my niece, Eileen, has down syndrome. She is a beautiful Four-year-old who we all adore so much!!!

The goals of Eileen In are the following:
“Inspire, Embrace, Include and Accept. We hope to Inspire all to lean in and Embrace challenges and differences - in others and in themselves, to Include and to Accept all people. We believe these goals are universal – for people of all abilities. We want to spread knowledge, understanding and joy. We are all more alike than different.”

Please consider donating to our team!
