Today’s athlete of the week is Benjamin Wu from Independence Park! Ben’s mom is nominating him because he is always good natured and willing to give any sport or activity a try even if he does not know anything about it.

Ben has participated in snowshoe, bocce ball, and archery. He had very little experience but always gives it his all!

He has enjoyed many of the at home experiences including Zoom cooking and the Chicago Park District’s Family Opportunities.

Ben’s favorite food is pizza and his favorite sports team is the Chicago Bulls. Ben enjoys riding his bicycle, listening to music, drawing, swimming, and like this picture shows, he likes working out with mom in the fitness center!

His mom said “I think Ben should be Athlete of the week because he really does enjoy living life and is always looking forward to being active and happy!”
