Join KCF to hear Bob Muzikowski…
…Co-founder of America’s largest Inner City Little League
…and Founder of Chicago Hope Academy!
When: February 16th from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM Where: Wieboldt Hall, Room 109
KCF is delighted to host Bob Muzikowski! Muzikowski attended Columbia University where he played football and rugby before losing nearly everything to alcohol and drugs. With the help of his wife, Alcohol Anonymous, and a new faith in God, Muzikowski turned his life around. He and his wife then moved to Chicago for new careers in insurance and trading at JP Morgan respectively.
During his daily commute Muzikowski noticed the need for an inner city little league as a means for youth to escape the daily violence faced in the projects. With the help of a neighbor, Muzikowski founded Near North Little League in the Cabrini-Green Housing project area, often playing amid gunshots in distance. This league spanned into two more leagues and has transformed the lives of countless youth and business leader volunteers.
Muzikowski has since founded Chicago Hope Academy, the first private non-denominational high school in Chicago, impacting the lives of even more Chicago’s youth.
