Chicago Bears fans can meet and get autographs from several former players on Tuesday night at a fundraiser for the Waukegan Invaders youth track program.
The event will be held at All-Pro Sports Performance, 122 Ambrogio Drive, Gurnee. The building is located just north of Washington Street and just west of Route 41.
All-Pro Sports Performance is where young athletes and sports teams can go to enhance conditioning and improve athletic performance. It was founded by longtime Waukegan sports figure Rob May and former Bears players Jason McKie, Alex Brown and Adrian Peterson.
At Tuesday's fundraiser, fans will pay $20 to get autographs and meet the following ex-Bears: defensive end Brown (No. 96, 2002-2009), defensive tackle Anthony Adams (No. 95, 2007-2011), fullback McKie (No. 37, 2003-2009), fullback Antonio Harris (No. 36, 2005 preseason), and wideout Johnny Knox(No. 13, 2009-2011).
All proceeds will go to the Invaders club, which is headed by Ken Almond. The nature of club track requires travel to weekend meets, and the Invaders need funds for travel expenses as well uniforms and equipment.
All-Pro Sports Performance shares workout space with the Cheer & Dance Xtreme youth program that's headed by Stacey McKie, who is Jason's wife.
