For those of you who joined us at the Gage last Wednesday, we thank you. Jeff Simon and Lisa Quinn gave compelling speeches regarding the Lions for Hope Sports Complex as well as what it means to be a Chicago Lion.
With about 80 people in attendance, many of you asked how you can help with these unique projects. There are three ways to do so:
- Direct Donation;
- Taking the message to the public through word of mouth, social media sharing and being an ambassador of the project; and
- Volunteering for a role to help continue the positive momentum for the Lions for Hope Sports Complex Chicago Lions Rugby and the Chicago Lions Community Rugby Program (middle school).
We are currently compiling a fact sheet for easy reference that will have links to specific areas of the website.
Further, as many of you have requested, we will also provide the data shared at the Gage event as it is a powerful tool to engage those unfamiliar with the project.
Please keep an eye out for addition information regarding the LFHSC and the CLCRP.
OUR MISSION is to build athletic fields and develop programs for the children of Chicago’s North Lawndale and East Garfield Park communities. Through rugby and other sports, we will expand life opportunities for the area youth to increase their social capital. This project is to not only enhance the community but also to give children a safe haven in the neighborhood.
