Welcome to KEEN Chicago’s Summer of IMPACT!
Meet KEEN Athlete Lana!
Summer of Impact Athlete with bowling pins

My daughter is in a program called “KEEN Chicago,” for young athletes. KEEN Chicago is an organization that allows children and young adults with special needs and/ or disabilities to partake in fun activities such as dancing, swimming, sports, and art. Every child/young adult is paired with a trained volunteer to help them participate in non-competitive activities. And the best part about this organization is that it’s completely free!! At just twenty-three weeks and five days, my daughter was born premature, weighing one pound and two ounces. She had to use a ventilator because she could not breathe on her own and at the age of one, she was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. My daughter Lana cannot walk or talk, and she uses a wheelchair to get around. With the help of KEEN volunteers my daughter can feel free, happy, and most importantly accepted. - Samantha, KEEN Parent

As KEEN’s programs are offered at no cost to our athletes, families and caregivers, your support this summer goes to immediate use for our athletes like Lana. Any donation, no matter how small, will contribute to our goal of raising $5,000 in 14 days to provide new equipment for the 150 athletes participating in our programs here in Chicago.
