BENEFITING: CHICAGO ADVENTURE THERAPY NFP
EVENT DATE: Jun 07, 2014
Help me support Chicago Adventure Therapy!
If you are new to Chicago Adventure Therapy (CAT), the organization empowers underserved youth in Chicago through outdoor adventure sports like kayaking, orienteering, cycling, and rock climbing. I was very fortunate to have outdoor/adventure sports be a part of my life growing up, so I know firsthand the lasting positive impact it has on a young person's life. I can tell you my story about how sports instilled valuable skills in me like determination, teamwork, and discipline. I can tell you how outdoor adventuring helped me conquer my fears and teach me how to push my limits and grow as a person, and how I want to provide these same experiences to those who are underserved by our society. But none of my comments will speak to the impact that CAT makes better than direct quotes from youth whom have participated in the programming:
"This trip for me was a life changer. It made me think about how I want to make changes in my life around doing things better for myself so that more opportunities like this can come my way."
"I have learned to be a better person at home and in the streets, and everywhere else I go. I recommend this program to anyone who is struggling."
This is why I run to support CAT: to provide more possibilities to underserved youth in Chicago.
The opportunities to run amazing programming have never been stronger for CAT, but we need your help! Please consider making a donation which will directly support outdoor programming.
I sincerely appreciate your support!
