I have been blessed to play the game I love for the past 23 years. Through soccer I have made endless memories and met some of my closest friends.
Unfortunately, some kids do not get that opportunity. With the help of the Chicago Fire Foundation, at needs children across Chicago will be given the chance to learn and play the game of soccer. They will also be getting academic, social, and emotional support as well.
I will be running my first ever marathon and believe that the Chicago Fire Foundation is a perfect cause for me to get behind. I am in no means a big runner, but this has been on my bucket list. Please support me in my journey any way you can whether that is financially or just cheering me on as I try to take this on.
Thank you for your support of the Chicago Fire Foundation!
The commitment to run a race at any distance should not be unappreciated; raising money to support a worthwhile cause makes this achievement even more notable! The funds raised as a part of Team CFF will help the Chicago Fire Foundation expand its award winning P.L.A.Y.S. (Participate, Learn, Achieve, Youth, Soccer) Program!
This 10-week innovative program takes place in the spring and is committed to enhancing the academic performance and development of key social and emotional skills of elementary school students through a sport based curriculum.
P.L.A.Y.S. began in 2013, and has since been able to provide over 200,000 hours of soccer to boys and girls in grades 3-5. In 2020, the program is expanding to 40 Chicago Public Schools across some of the most underserved neighborhoods in the city.
