With Thanksgiving only a few days away, and having just launched our Honor Our Heroes Holiday Challenge, WSC would like to take a moment to express what we are thankful for as we head into the holiday season.
Scott Meyers – Executive Director – “I’m thankful for an outstanding group of sports mentors and a very dedicated staff that is working hard to bring more opportunities and support to youth in underserved communities across Chicago, as well as the partnership of community groups, schools and organizations like Youth Guidance who share our passion for providing guidance support to the youth of ChicagoÂ to support their resilience.”
Jason Eby – Director of Programming – “At World Sport Chicago, Iâ€™m thankful for our team of twenty BAM-Sports sports mentors and the work they do every week in directly making an impact with several hundred Chicago youth and already logging over 3,000 service hours this year. Personally, I am thankful that everyone in my immediate and extended is healthy and well despite some scares this year.”
Rachael Veurink – Development – â€śThis Thanksgiving I am thankful for the support of friends.Â In the past year, I have had the opportunity to meet many new people.Â I am thankful for the new relationships that I have built, as well as the continued support from my friends back at home.â€ť
Stephanie Miller – Program Manager – “I am thankful for the opportunities that sports gives to Chicago kids. Itâ€™s great to see kids gain self-confidence, make friends, get healthy and have fun when they participate in sports!”
Joe Malia – Communications – Definitely my family and friends. They have given me continued support, and without it I wouldn’t have the opportunity to help grow our programs that make our city a better place.
Again we thank you all for your continued support in our programs, and wish you a safe and joyful holiday season with family and friends!
