America’s best athletes are the embodiment of our nation. At the Olympic Games, we see the physical manifestation of American pride: strength, grace, determination, perseverance. The achievements of our medalists are shared victories for us all.
The theme of the 2012 Olympics, “Inspire a Generation” reminds us that children who watch the Olympics today may represent our nation in future years. Today, a child learns to somersault; tomorrow, they may stand among the most gifted gymnasts in the world.
It is widely agreed that the discipline required in sports enables our youth to succeed as adults. From learning how to work within a team, to developing confidence and leadership skills, sports participation provides numerous mental and emotional benefits. From physical fitness to lasting friendships, the positive impact of sports enables our children to reach their full potential.
Will you help us give Chicago youth this opportunity?
The “Expect a Miracle” Foundation offers assistance to the children of working, single parents. These parents work hard to provide necessities to their children, but they cannot afford the costs of extracurricular activities. Sports fees, equipment costs, uniforms, lessons – it’s simply too much for many single parents. This is where we come in. Whether a child seeks to take a tumbling class, or play football, or learn to play an instrument, we provide the means to make these childhood dreams come true.
Each year, we receive more requests for aid than we can feasibly honor. It saddens us to say “no” to so many deserving children. We’re hoping you can help us say “yes” to a few more. Our annual fundraiser is underway right now and here’s how you can help!
