Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Special Olympics Chicago/Special Children’s Charities’ Annual Evening Reception on November 16!

We had an amazing evening with our guests, athletes, and honorees. You can help support the event by making a donation.

Can Do Club is a fun way to support Special Olympics Chicago athletes through activities and races that you choose!

Last year we had a great group of runners and walkers use their miles for good, and this year we’re expanding it! No matter what your sport, you can use your daily activity, in person, or virtual races as a fundraiser!

We have great incentives for fundraising milestones, plus prizes for activities and challenges along the way
