We were so fortunate this year to be chosen as a charity to participate in the DuPage Human Race. The DuPage Human Race is a 5K walk and run that chooses a number of charities to benefit through registration fees and donations. This year, the race is being held April 28 at the Esplanade in Downers Grove. We are so excited to take part in this event and hope to participate for many years to come!
To register to run or walk with us at the race or to donate to our cause, visit https://www.dupagehumanrace.org/
One of our primary students, Jackson, made a $10,000 fundraising goal for this year in the hopes that he could meet the Chicago Blackhawks by reaching it! We are so proud and inspired by his enthusiasm and his drive! To donate to Jackson click here.

On April 12, our students participated in a Fun Run in preparation for the DuPage Human Race! After weeks of practicing during Run and Walk Club, our students ran their race around our facility. Each student received a medal for doing an awesome job and then was able to spend the afternoon having fun with peers dancing, face painting and playing outside! We’re so proud of our all of our students!
