World Sport Chicago named Oct 6th through 10th Athlete Ambassador week in honor of our first visit of the year taking place on Fri, Oct 10th with Olympian Gary Morgan at Hamilton Elementary.

We featured ambassador profiles every day during Ambassador week and will continue posting new profiles Wednesdays throughout the school year.

The ambassadors include Olympians, Paralympians, National Team members and NCAA athletes who have worked hard to achieve success both on and off the field and volunteer their time throughout the school year.

Hosted by U.S. Paralympics in conjunction with World Sport Chicago and area Chicago Paralympic Development Program members, Gateway to Gold provides an opportunity for all youth and adults with physical and visual disabilities to participate in this free, public national talent identification event taking place at three Chicagoland locations from 4:30pm to 8:00pm on Friday, October 24th.

Participants have the opportunity to be tested, meet Paralympians, elite athletes and national team coaches in the sports of cycling, powerlifting, track and field.
