Founder

LaRon Wade

LaRon Wade is the Founder of Beyond Athletics Chicago. As a native Chicagoan from the tough North Lawndale area on the West Side, sports became his lifeline which helped him develop a spirit of competitiveness, discipline and leadership. Losing a brother to Chicago’s gun violence, LaRon became committed to inspiring and guiding youth by serving as a positive male role model. For over 10 years, through devoted mentorship and coaching, LaRon’s student athletes have gained a sense of responsibility, hope and unwavering confidence to excel. LaRon organizes community service projects, cultural enrichment outings, life skills workshops, and other initiatives designed to inspire young people and make a positive impact in various communities throughout the City of Chicago.
