As the birthplace of the Special Olympics, there is no city more fitting than Chicago to serve as the global stage for our climactic 50th Anniversary. Synonymous with vibrancy and diversity, Chicago will capture the hearts and minds of hundreds of millions of followers witnessing this spotlight on the acceptance for al...l people.
A series of high-profile, weeklong events will quickly build global awareness of unified inclusion, highlighting Chicago’s leading role in the worldwide movement. We will tap into the more than 300 million social media followers of participating professional sports teams and musical acts, our ESPN media partner and on-site audiences. Beyond the press and weeklong events, the 50th Anniversary celebration will establish Chicago as a model for inclusion in the city, education and parks for the years to come.
