Sports icons and community leaders will explore compelling sports topics during the 2nd Annual Chicago Sports Summit, Wednesday, Oct. 4, Hyatt Regency Chicago, 151 East Wacker Drive. Panelists will discuss branding a business with sports celebrities, advances in sports science, and how sports and after-school activities help youth engage in positive behavior, potentially reducing the violence in Chicago. 

The Summit will raise funds for the Chicago Sports Summit Foundation, an organization that supports the physical and educational development of Chicago-area youth through partnerships with local charities sharing the same vision.  A majority of the proceeds will be donated to After School Matters, a non-profit organization offering extracurricular activities in the arts, communication, sports, science and technology to at-risk teenagers.  Last year’s event raised $35,000 for After School Matters.

Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR) will host the event and Athletico Physical Therapy will serve as title sponsor.
