Big Jump for Friends of the Chicago River

The Big Jump will take place by the Ping Tom Park's Boat House.

Come watch Friends’ executive director, Margaret Frisbie, and Water Reclamation District Commissioner Josina Morita jump into the Chicago River with other advocates; federal, state, and county elected officials; and representatives from key agencies at Ping Tom Park on August 25. The Big Jump highlights efforts to improve the river’s water quality and demonstrates our commitment to making the Chicago River swimmable for all.

This is a fundraiser for Friends of the Chicago River's K-12 education program and water quality efforts, so please consider donating here:
