The 5th anniversary Edition!
3000+ Big Ten Alums from 14 schools on 1 mission:
To raise $50,000+ for Chicago public school programs
Join Big Ten alumni and fans on Saturday, Aug. 23, for the "ChicagoTEN Alumni Challenge" - a crawl through the best River North bars (last year's bars) to kick off college football season.
Each Big Ten school will compete in challenges against their rivals at every bar, collect items for contests, win awesome prizes, take home some awesome swag, and enjoy sweet drink deals!
The goal of the ChicagoTEN Alumni Challenge is to raise $50,000+ for Chicago Public Schools, by donating 100 percent of the $15 ($20 day-of) ticket to charity. Charitable crawlers raised over $40,000 for local kids last year.
Alumni for Public Schools (APS) provides Chicago Public School’s students the opportunity to see success through alumni involvement. We create partnerships between local schools and university alumni clubs to ensure every student has access to the resources they deserve.
