I am the proud mother of an athlete and can tell you first hand that Special Olympics Chicago has been a positive influence in my daughter's life. She has participated in basketball, swimming, track and field and numerous social opportunities. Each of these experiences has afforded her the chance to interact with others and forge new and lasting friendships.
