This site if for any athlete who has signed up to race an Ironman and wishes to race in support of TeamULBGC. TeamULBGC is the Union League Boys and Girls Clubs in Chicago's official charity race team. All of the proceeds from the funds raised benefit the organization which serves over 11,168 of Chicago's youth through after school programs.
The youth membership only cost the youth $5 a year, when they cannot afford that, which many of them cannot we provide them a scholarship. They receive a hot meal every weeknight, our 5 core programming areas of character & leadership, education & career, health & lifestyle skills, the arts and specialized initiatives. While our youth face high school drop out rates at local high schools that are over 50%, when they are in our Clubs, with positive caring staff and mentors, homework help and access to program that builds character and leadership skills while introducing them to the idea of going to college or a vocational school, we strive to have them become outstanding citizens, not just another statistic. TeamULBGC is the right team for you if you believe every youth that is given a positive place to go after school and offered support can become not just another citizen, but a great citizen!
