Since 2007, Nelarusky’s Mission has been to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics, as well as showcase both local and national acts through an annual benefit concert and partnership with Lollapalooza and Metro Chicago. Nelarusky also provides young entrepreneurs an incredible learning opportunity to volunteer at this event. Nelarusky has now raised over $470K for Special Olympics.
Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities by giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship. They are able to do so with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. For more information on Special Olympics Illinois visit www.soill.org.
