I have been involved with Special Olympics since 2014 when I began working for Special Olympics in Miami, FL. I am very passionate about the mission of Special Olympics and so excited to be a member of Special Olympics Illinois Young Professionals Board, which is a group of young professionals dedicated to raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics.
The annual Chicago Ducky Derby is a signature fundraising event for Special Olympics Illinois. Each year, more than 65,000 rubber ducks splash down and race to the finish line. The winners of the race receive prizes, including a 2021 Chevy Trailblazer; an all-inclusive trip to Rivera Maya, Mexico; a cash prize; and more. The proceeds go to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. Please consider adopting a duck TODAY for a chance to win and join in on the fun on Thursday, August 5th!
