This program is the first of its kind in the state of Ohio and provides children and young adults with disabilities the opportunity to participate in an organized, competitive, and developmental sport.

How It Works

The first step in any meaningful endeavor is the decision to start — the decision to make a difference in the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities. You can do this!

The race will start on Waldron Drive next to Soldier Field. Please note the course does not go through the stadium.
