Contribute to Team Urban Initiatives for the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
Urban Initiatives uses the power of sport to transform underserved Chicago communities. Our model offers participants a continuum of programming in which each stage builds on the learning and growth offered in the previous stage. Through engagement in our sport for social change work, students transition from Player to Team Captain to Coach.
We take a collaborative approach to development and work with parents, teachers, and community stakeholders to empower children to reach their full potential.
We create a diverse and inclusive environment, one in which participants are invited to join our teams, regardless of skill level, and engage with their peers through broad, citywide networks.
With a footprint of more than 50 Chicago Public Schools and 15,000 students served, we are poised for greater impact than ever before.
