You knew Ultimate was a fun way to get your sweat on and meet cool people, but did you ever think Ultimate could make peace in the Middle East?

 

Ultimate Peace does just that. Inspired by Spirit of the Game and teamwork, Ultimate Peace brings together young Israelis and Palestinians to develop relationships and understanding—by playing Ultimate together.

 

Ultimate Chicago is proud to announce an exclusive event for UC members and friends on Tuesday, April 15 at 7 pm, at Big Bricks, located at 3832 N. Lincoln Ave. Come hear UP Coaches in Training, visiting from the Middle East, speak about the impact Ultimate has had on their lives and why they are optimistic about the future in Palestine, Israel, and beyond.

 

A $10 suggested donation gets you a free drink and supports the work of Ultimate Peace. Come out and bring a friend. Be prepared to be inspired.
