The First Annual Golden Games
August 22, 2023 All day
They’ve spent a lifetime training, competing, and winning gold, bronze, and silver medals, and now, on August 21–23, current and retired athletes ages 45 and above will compete in the first-ever Golden Games! Special Olympics Chicago/Special Children’s Charities and the Chicago Park District will join forces to host this three-day mix of sports competitions and social activities celebrating these athletes–some of which have been competing since the very first games in 1968!
Sporting events include Bowling, Track and Field, Basketball Skills, Softball Skills, Bocce, Fishing, Archery, and Adaptive Bicycles. Social activities will include picnics, a Chicago White Sox game, an evening reception dinner dance, and shared meals. Athletes and coaches will stay at the Hilton Chicago throughout Golden Games.
We are thrilled to sponsor all of these activities so they can be free for participants and coaches.
