Running for Special Olympics & Uncle Rodney

My Story

I am grateful for Special Olympics and all they do, and have done, for our loved ones and community members, including my Uncle Rodney. I invite you to learn how you can support their incredible work besides donating to this charity. Check out their story below, and I welcome your donation $1 or whatever feels possible to reach the minimum goal of $1,250.00. Together, we got this. 


From Special Olympics:

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, #TeamSpecialOChicago 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.
