BENEFITING: Urban Initiatives
ORGANIZER: Urban Initiatives
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016
My name is Ricky Marquardt and I'm part of the Urban Initiatives Marathon Team. I've been fortunate enough to grow up with Urban Initiatives, when Jimmy Dower (UI's founder) coached my Wilmette Wings soccer team. Since then I've been able to watch their impact grow every year. UI is an amazing organization, and it has been awesome experience to be a part of it.
What is Urban Initiatives?
Their mission is to empower Chicago's underserved children to adopt healthy lifestyles, improve academic performance, and build strong character through sports-based programs.

Funds raised by Team Urban Initiatives will support the 15,000 Chicago children in our programs, providing them with opportunities to grow through the power of sport and play.
Thank you for your support,
