Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
My name’s Ari Kowalski and I am currently training for my very first marathon!
I recently decided to step away from the corporate world and transition into teaching in hopes of making a greater impact on our world. While going back to school, I was encouraged to become a Special Ed Classroom Assistant and it was the best decision I have ever made. My students have stolen my heart and changed my world for the better.
Many of the students in my classroom and at my school actively participate in Special Olympics, and I have seen first hand how incredible the organization is for everyone involved. Special Olympics Chicago believes that connecting people through sports and physical activity are the beginning steps in spreading their mission of inclusion, acceptance, and joy. Together, we can cross the finish line towards more inclusive communities.
