Horizons for Youth’s unique approach to helping children from low-resource areas of Chicago via scholarship, mentoring and enrichment opportunities has garnered attention from high-profile media outlets.

At the end of summer 2018, ESPN’s E:60 program will be telling the story of Declan Drumm Sullivan, his life and tragic passing, and his family’s reaction to the loss. Part of this segment will discuss the creation of the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund, of which Horizons for Youth is the primary beneficiary. We deeply respect and are grateful to the Sullivan family for opening their hearts in the wake of tragedy and using Declan’s legacy to catalyze educational opportunities for over 90 Horizons for Youth students.

As such, we invite our community to tune in to this program honoring the amazing life and legacy of Declan Drumm Sullivan. We will update this page with final information about an air date and time when it becomes available.
