Mike Singletary

"If we didn't have park districts, think what the kids would be doing. Growing up, I found role models at the park district and I found opportunities, whether it was hiking, playing ball or pool. I am extremely thankful for that in my life." —Mike Singletary, talking with kids and families in Conservation World
