The Sky Cares Foundation’s main initiative the Chicago Sky Fitness Festival is a health and fitness festival held at Allstate Arena that is designed to show girls 8-18 all the ways they can get active, such as playing a sport, dancing or jumping double-dutch. Having role models, mentors, educators and coaches who model and teach this behavior is a critical aspect of building these positive life habits.

Research proves good habits in health and physical activity help build self-esteem and confidence:
- Girls who do 15 minutes of moderate physical activity a day reduce their risk of obesity by almost 50 percent.
- Girls who play sports are less likely to do drugs & get pregnant & are more likely to get higher test scores & develop self-confidence.
- Oppenheimer Funds study finds 4 out of 5 executive business women played sports growing up.
Over 400 youths from non-profit organizations participated in the Fitness Festival in 2016.
