Urban Initiatives is thrilled to receive honorable mention for the United Airlines Chicago Impact Award. We were chosen due to our stellar use of sport to address a social issue. The judging panel included representatives from the Mayor’s Office, World Sport Chicago, Beyond Sport, United Airlines, and the Chicago Tribune. As a result of this recognition, Dan Isherwood will be representing UI at the Beyond Sport Pre-Summit sessions. Thank you for this recognition!
Good luck to the five projects on the shortlist! They all provide incredible sports-based youth development programming to Chicago youth.
