About Northwestern Special Olympics March 5, 2007

Posted by nuspecialo in Home.

Northwestern’s Special Olympics group is the oldest and largest student-run Special Olympics program in the United States. We work with Area Five of Special Olympics Illinois to host the annual Spring Track and Field Games. Many of our members coach Area Five athletes on a regular basis.

We also coordinate and organize many on-campus events for local athletes, including sports tournaments, a Valentine’s Day Dance, and an outdoor carnival.

Finally, Special Olympics Northwestern is responsible for raising the funds to organize the Spring Games, and events geared toward this goal include our 5K, a brand new Price is Right game show, and various local fundraisers in the Evanston Area.

If you would like to learn more about how to get involved, volunteer, or make a donation, please email Meri or Julie.
