Treasurer Frerichs paraded with athletes and spoke at the Opening Ceremonies.
The Treasurer was on-hand to kick-off the Special Olympics Illinois Winter Games 2022! The games, which featured skiing and snowshoeing competitions, were held in beautiful and wintery Galena.
After a parade down historic Main Street, the Treasurer declared the games open and shared the many benefits of IL ABLE savings and investment accounts for SOILL athletes and all ABLE-eligible individuals. Some of those benefits are:
- You can contribute up to $16,000 per year to this tax-free savings account – more if you work.
- Contributions may be tax deductible.
- You can save for everyday and/or long-term expenses.
“I wish all the Special Olympics athletes the best of the luck in the Winter Games and encourage families to find out more about how to save for your child’s future at illinoisABLE.com,” said Treasurer Frerichs.
