We are proud to help people with disabilities participate in everything life has to offer. This includes coaching and managing a team in the Special Olympics Illinois Basketball league. Ticketed scrimmages such as with the Bradley Braves have allowed the team to purchase new jersey tops and branded water bottles. We are hoping to raise enough to purchase matching shorts this year to complete our team look. Our players take such pride in representing the Bulldogs, and EP!C as a whole and it’s amazing to see them perform under the bright lights in such a large arena with the crowds cheering for them!
Special thanks to the River City Athletic Club for providing our practice space this season!
