Special Olympics Illinois is unique in its ability to connect local athletes - children and adults with intellectual disabilities - with opportunities to improve their health, increase their confidence, make new friends, and participate in joyful, life-changing experiences. Please consider making a #GivingTuesday gift of any size to Special Olympics Illinois. You can help bring sports training, competition, and free health screenings to more than 22,000 athletes across the state.
