Special Olympics Family Festival
Each September, Consolidated Communications employees, family members and community volunteers host the Special Olympics Family Festival (SOFF) for Illinois Special Olympian Athletes from east central Illinois. It’s an exciting day filled with fun, food, music, entertainment and noncompetitive games on the grounds of Lake Land College. Every participant truly emerges a winner!
From its beginnings with just a few hundred Special Olympian Athletes and volunteers, SOFF now attracts nearly 700 Special Olympians and some 1,400 or more volunteers who run the games, serve lunch or act as Friends-for-a-Day for the Special Olympian Athletes.
