The most meaningful and successful projects are the ones that connect on a deep and personal level with those involved. With that in mind, as a Mustang Community, we selected Special Olympics as our school wide philanthropy project this year! This charity that we have selected to support will directly impact many of our very own Special Olympic Athletes and programs that we offer at Downers Grove South.
Here at DGS we have more than 50 Special Olympic Athletes in our school. The majority of our athletes participate in our D99 Hoops program. However, there are active Special Olympics cheerleaders, swimmers, bowlers, rhythmic gymnasts, and musicians. In addition to our Special Olympics Athletes, we have more than 20 student coaches. These programs in our school unify our student body and staff, build relationships, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Let’s come together to make a difference in the lives of others.
