One of largest fundraisers for Special Olympics Illinois is back! Adopt a duck in the 2021 Chicago Ducky Derby and you could win a variety of prizes, with all proceeds benefitting the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. Duck adoptions are $5 for one entry or $25 for a 6.
The picture I've included sums up my Special Olympics involvement pretty well:
- I'm wearing my Special Olympics 50th anniversary shirt
- I'm with Chris, my friend and Special Olympics Illinois athlete
- And we're attending a Blackhawks game with tickets that I won in a Special Olympics fundraising raffle!
Needless to say, my involvement with Special Olympics has brought me great joy over the past 4 years. I have volunteered at numerous sporting events and made lasting friendships. Any contribution you can make to continue to support the mission of Special Olympics is greatly appreciated!
