1WORLD Sports, Chicago Cubs Inspire Local Kids

By: Ashmar Mandou

 Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - EducationThe dreams of 50 kids from the Chicago Housing Authority and the Chicago Park District came true on Tuesday as they had a chance to meet their favorite Cubs players.

1WORLD Sports took over Little Cubs Field in Humboldt Park for its second annual “Event to Inspire” with the Chicago Cubs on hand to help make disadvantaged kids in Chicago feel like stars on the field by boosting their confidence.

For most of the afternoon youth stood alongside Chicago Cubs player Tony Campana to learn about the art of baseball and acquired valuable life lessons off the field. After playing ball, kids learned about nutrition, community, teamwork, and the importance of a good education.

This year’s event was made possible with the help from Sterling Partners, The Sports Shed, and The Best of Midwest Challenge (BOMC). For more information on 1 WORLD Sports, visit www.1WORLDSports.org.
