The 3rd Get Up & Move Event sponsored by Board of Directors member Brendan Edmonds took place on Saturday August 23rd. Get Up & Move! is a part of the Community Based Eprogam series that is promoting positive lifestyle choices like healthy eating, the importance of physical activity, and teamwork. All matches were able to participate in every station and activity. The football activities were led by sponsor Brendan Edmonds, Dan Persa, Brian Mulroe, & Ray Bogenrief! The organization Girls in the Game taught the group soccer skills. We also were joined by Kids Table who taught everyone how to make healthy rainbow salsa and all were able to make their own! We hosted the event at Chicago Indoor Sports and had over 100 matches (200 people) sign up for the event. Everyone went home with an Athletico soccerball and new water bottle.
