Chicago Wolves forward Terry Broadhurst will appear at the Chicago Ridge Public Library on Thursday, Jan. 8, to continue the 20th season of the “Read to Succeed” program, presented by Butternut Bread and J.U.L.I.E., Inc.
The 26-year-old BROADHURST, who was born in Orland Park and attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha, will start his program at 4 p.m. at 10400 S. Oxford Avenue in Chicago Ridge.
The “Read to Succeed” program teaches the importance of recreational reading and encourages children to use the many resources that libraries have to offer. BROADHURST will speak about the benefits of reading outside the classroom and discuss how it plays an important part in his life as a professional athlete.
Participants can win prizes — including Wolves knit hats, pennants, and tickets to upcoming games — for setting and achieving reading goals.
Throughout the season, more than 17,000 children will participate in the program, with Wolves players making appearances at select libraries throughout the Chicago area.
