Support the Dream Team!

It’s time for Bike the Drive!

The Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, Lake Shore Drive closes to cars bright and early to prepare for many bikers’ favorite ride of the year. Since Chicago was recently named the #1 biking city in America by Bicycling magazine, it’s no surprise that Lake Shore Drive will be packed with bicyclists throughout the morning.

Some of those bicyclists will be riding for our very own Dream Team. Center for Independent Futures participants and community members will be biking the drive, but they need your support!

Our community is biking to raise funds to support the Center for Independent Futures mission: creating innovative service models that support individuals with disabilities and their families to live full, independent lives. The Dream Team has a goal to raise $10,000, and you can help them get there!

The team is busy biking and training for this big event, and we’re all getting excited. To support the team, visit our Bike the Drive Crowdrise fundraising page. You can donate online in support of whichever team member you choose -- or you can support the team as a whole.

If you’re interested in riding with the team, reach out to the office to find out how to sign up and when to arrive. During this special event available just once a year, the opportunity to have a great time biking and support a wonderful community is a guaranteed fun day.
