More than 400 sports-minded guests gathered to hear controversial topics, such as concussions in football players and harassment and abuse for female athletes during the 3rd annual Chicago Sports Summit, hosted by Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush and sponsored by Athletico Physical Therapy and Optimum Nutrition. The event featured Olympic athletes Dara Torres, Kendall Coyne, Jack O’Callahan, Diane Simpson, and Lindsay Tarpley. It also featured big names in Chicago sports: Mike Adamle and Matt Forte, both former Chicago Bears players. Media celebrities Siafa Lewis, NBC5; and Paula Faris, Good Morning America; served as moderators for the Summit. The Summit raised an estimated $100,000 for After School Matters, Girls in the Game, and sports medicine research at Rush University Medical Center.
