City-wide track program will run kids ragged

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It's summer, and your kids have been driving you up the wall with their constant need to be entertained. You think you've exhausted all the possibilities -- but have you tried exhausting them? This Saturday, July 25, marks the second of four days of Mayor Daley's Summer Track Program, which takes place at locations across the city (subsequent events will be held on August 1 and August 16).

Approximately 30 city wards will field teams of kids ages 9-14 for a variety of track events, including dashes, relays and long jumps. The program will feature a city-wide championship at the end, as well as several appearances by Olympic gold medalists Bob Beamon and Gail Devers. Check out World Sport Chicago (be prepared for lots of 2016 logos) for all the details.
