Welcome to the CHIEF MEMORIAL GOLF OUTING

On September 23rd, 2024, In honor of Chief Darrell Sanders, we invite you to join us for a day of camaraderie and charity. Together, let's continue Darrell's mission of making a difference in the lives of others, just as he did throughout his remarkable life!

Among his many achievements, Darrell was proudest of his induction into the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Hall of Fame, for his role in raising millions of dollars for the cause. His tireless efforts to support the organization, combined with his love for golf, inspired the creation of the Darrell L. Sanders Memorial Golf Outing. This event, benefiting Special Olympics Illinois, will be held at Ruffled Feathers Golf Course, 1 Pete Dye Dr, Lemont, IL 60439, a fitting tribute to Darrell's enduring legacy.

DARRELL'S STORY WITH SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Darrell Sanders, a former police chief of Frankfort, Illinois, found a profound calling in Special Olympics Illinois —a passion sparked by his son Brent's heartfelt insights. Brent's involvement with the mentally handicapped community, particularly through organizing Olympic-style events, deeply resonated with Darrell. When Brent expressed that true competition lies in being the best one can be rather than defeating opponents, Darrell was moved to action.

Brent's untimely passing in a plane crash further fueled Darrell's commitment to Special Olympics Illinois. Since then, he tirelessly dedicated himself to various roles within the organization, driven by a desire to honor Brent's memory and embody the spirit of compassion and service. Despite his demanding responsibilities as police chief, Darrell remained steadfast in his support for Special Olympics Illinois, both locally and internationally. His journey with the organization has not only enriched his life but also exemplified the profound impact of selfless dedication and empathy.

Through Darrell's unwavering dedication, we witnessed the transformative power of love, loss, and the enduring legacy of a father's bond with his son—a bond that continued to inspire positive change in the lives of others through Special Olympics Illinois.
