Bank of America Chicago Marathon - Special Olympics Chicago Team

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!


As many of you know I am a Special Olympics Coach and Special Olympics Athletic Coordinator at an Occupational High school in Chicago. Some of the sports that we offer at my school are soccer, basketball, track and field, softball, and we will be adding bocce ball next year. I have seen firsthand the benefits that Special Olympics have had for my students. Many of these students would have no motivation to be physically active or participate in a team sport without these programs. I have ran the marathon twice in the past and I swore I would never put myself through that again however, recently due to budget cuts most of the funding for Special Olympic programs in public schools has been cut so I am asking for your help to make a small donation to help! Every dollar counts!!!
