Who:  Assurance staff members were jazzed up to be volunteering at the Special Olympics Chicago Match Play Competition. Special Olympics is the world’s largest program for sports training and athletic competition for children with intellectual disabilities, inspiring greatness in more than 1 million athletes in 150 nations worldwide.

  • Keeping score
  • Coaching players
  • Shagging tennis balls
  • Cheering on winners during the medal ceremony
