Nearly 100 military and military family members attended USO Family Fun Day with the Chicago Bears at Washington Park’s Bynum Island in Chicago on August 21. Military teens and tweens participated in the Chicago Park District’s Team Obstacle Course, and our younger military youth learned football skills and the value of fitness through the Chicago Bears Mini Monsters clinic. Families also utilized games found in the USO Stateside Care Packages like volleyball, corn hole, ladder toss, kickball, parachute games, and more! Former Chicago Bear, Steve Edwards, mingled with the military families and taught the youth new football moves, while a balloon artist was on hand to create wonderful caricatures for the children. As the fun event came to a close, all participating families were invited to stay and watch the Solar Eclipse.
Thank you to our friends at the Chicago Bears for their continued support of our USO Military Youth Programs.
