Chicago Lineman Kyle Long to Host Youth Fitness Event in Chicago


    gI_88554_Long200x200Kyle Long of the Chicago Bears recently made news by spending the day with a 9-year-old bullying victim, so it’s no surprise he will participate in an event focusing on childhood fitness and well-being. Long will sign autographs and greet fans at the “Grow Strong with Kyle Long” event at Uncle Bob’s Self Storage on 3626 North Broadway Avenue Chicago, IL 60613 on Saturday, July 12, from 12pm-2pm.

    Grow Strong with Kyle Long

    “Grow Strong with Kyle Long” will be a family-friendly event featuring games and activities designed for fun and fitness. Uncle Bob’s 16,000-square-foot parking lot will transform into a training center for kids to test their skills on several life-size inflatable activity stations. Activities include a bungee run modeled after pro linemen training and the junior sports challenge, a multi-sport skill trainer. There will also be video fitness training and a climb and slide for cooling down after the workout. All activities will be conducted under proper adult supervision.

    “I’ve always loved working with kids and fitness offers as many benefits for the mind as it does the body,” Long said. “It’s important to encourage good habits early on and I’m happy to be a part of that.”

    Autograph Signing and Other Attractions

    Long will sign autographs and meet with fans from 12pm-2pm. In addition to the autograph session and fitness games, fresh fruit, juices and other healthy snacks will be provided. Sports Radio 670 The Score will also be on hand with a prize wheel and giveaways.
