Corvey Irvin plays for Chicago Bears. The FREE camp is presented in collaboration with Athletes for Charity. It will feature an educational and football clinic from 9am – 2pm for 250 underprivileged youth between the ages of 10 and 17 years.

"I have always wanted to do something to give back to my community and decided to host a football camp this year as a start," says Irvin. "I plan to do much more by teaming up with other members of my community to benefit kids in the area."

Campers will receive free lunch, t-shirts, gift bags and instruction by Corvey Irvin and a few of his colleagues in the NFL
