“Over the years of working with Special Olympics Illinois, I have been fortunate enough to develop great relationships with many of the participants who have made me want to get better each and every day. Their positive attitudes, excitement, and drive to be the best, regardless of what obstacle they have to overcome, puts a smile on my face each time I get the opportunity to work with one of the amazing participants.”
