Chicago Bulls guard, Ronnie Brewer, is committed to staying in shape and supporting the Chicago community during the NBA lockout. On November 6, Ronnie will be participating in SkyRise Chicago 2011 to benefit The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
Brewer is known for his philanthropic efforts, being honored with the Silas Hunt Award in 2009 for his donation of $50,000 to the University of Arkansas journalism scholarship fund. He is also an active participant in his own foundation, The Ronnie Brewer Foundation, whose mission is to aid in the educational and athletic development of his community’s youth through sports and recreation.
“As an athlete that has struggled with injury I know firsthand how important the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago is,” said Ronnie Brewer. “ When you get knocked down they are your crutch to get back up and carry on with your everyday life. I am very excited to be working with them for such an amazing cause.”
