On Sunday, May 20, nearly 30 military kids aged 11-18 attended USO Teen/Tween at Ultimate Ninjas Libertyville. Inspired by the hit television show “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC, Ultimate Ninjas offers a wide variety of obstacle courses for kids of every skill level. Agility courses, swinging ropes, monkey bars, quintuple steps, climbing and warped walls tested the Teens and Tweens strength and agility. Military youth had a fun time making new friends, testing their physical, mental abilities and becoming ultimate ninjas!
Thank you to the Chicago Bears for supporting our military youth programs and making this event possible.
