Celebrating 50 Years of Special Olympics

Z has been very active this spring in her role as a Global Messenger for the Special Olympics. The activities and speaking events in which she usually engages have heightened due to the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics. Though this achievement is being celebrated globally, many of the key events will be centralized here in the city of Chicago!

In May, Z was invited to an event held at the University of Chicago as the feature athlete. She provided opening remarks about her journey and experiences with the Special Olympics prior to a keynote by David Evangelista (President and Managing Director of Special Olympics Europe Eurasia). In case you missed it, check out the recording of her speech below!


We hope you will join us in celebrating the Special Olympics this summer!  Check out the full list of events here.
