Making Strides at Special Olympics Illinois
Since 2010, Rimland clients have participated in the Special Olympics Illinois Area 18 aquatics and track and field meets. Special Olympics Illinois Area 18 provides programming for participants in the north and northwest suburbs of Cook County that provides training and competition in an inclusive atmosphere that celebrates athletic activity, emphasizes health, and rewards achievement and determination. The Area 18 aquatics meet was held on March 22, at Lake Forest College. Rimland’s entrants participated in both the 25 Meter Freestyle and 25 Meter Backstroke events. Some Rimland participants won gold, silver, and bronze medals at the meet.
The track and field meet was held on Sunday, April 27, at Mount Prospect High School. Rimland participants engaged in running, race walking, and throwing events, and some Rimland participants won gold, silver, and bronze medals at this meet as well. Congratulations to all our participants!
