Help all kids be included
Proceeds will be used to build free resources for businesses and families to learn how to help neurodiverse children join into community events and spaces.
Join us on June 4th at the Chicago Dogs Stadium!
We are excited to be hosting our first IN-PERSON Sensory Stride at the Chicago Dogs Stadium, in Rosemont. Each registration includes a ticket to the baseball game, a t-shirt, a sensory passport, and a fidget!
We strive to bring education and resources to families and businesses to help everyone understand the simple changes that can help all kids join in. Help us continue to advance inclusion for children with invisible disabilities!
Register for your spot. We’ll be taking laps around the stadium together at 4 pm. Take as many or as few laps as you like. (3 laps = 1 mile)
Your help can make a HUGE difference with making the Sensory Stride a success. Come and help make this a memorable day.
