On Sunday July 8, the Chicago Sky in partnership with University of Chicago Medicine will host their first annual #ChicagoFit Health and Fitness Festival.

As part of the event this year, the Chicago Sky will be attempting to break a World Record for the largest multi-venue basketball clinic of 4,000 participants, including Special Olympics basketball players. The current record holder is Kevin Durant of the Golden Warriors and the NBA. The Sky hope to inspire people living in the Chicagoland area from ages 8 – 80 to be more conscious about their health this summer and show the world what the women of the WNBA can accomplish!

They are providing bus transportation to the first 30 groups that sign up! The buses can hold about 40-50 people. Lyft will also be providing discounted transportation.

  • Clinic Check-in: 12:30pm-2:00pm
