My Personal Fundraising Page

Our team was created in honor of Eileen Schaefers.  Eileen has Down Syndrome and will be 4 years old in January.  She is the heart and soul (and glasses) of Team Eileen In. The name came about after the phrase – leaning in.  To lean in (to something) to incline or press into something. You have to lean into the wind when you walk or you will be blown over. When you are faced with difficulties or challenges, rise up and embrace them…lean in.  

So come on, be #FREEZINFORAREASON and support the 7,500+ special olympians who lean in everyday and compete year-round in the city of Chicago. All funds raised will benefit the Special Olympics Chicago athletes, covering program costs such as transportation, sports equipment, team uniforms and food. Through your participation, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities and success.
