The mission of Variety of Illinois is to improve the quality of life for children with disabilities by providing the equipment and experiences needed to reach their highest potential. This is accomplished through programs such as Kids on the Go that provides mobility equipment not covered by insurance for children with physical limitations and Live to Achieve that encourages excellence in adaptive sports. Through a network of 43 chapters in 13 countries, Variety envisions a state where all children can actively participate in their communities and experience the joys that come with being a kid.
