Nike is doing good in Chicago by renovating a historic church into a basketball facility for the community. The Church of the Epiphany, located on the 200 block of South Ashland, has been around since 1855. ABC 7 Chicago reports the church closed in 2011 but now has new life as the “Just Do It HQ at The Church.”
Nike took over the building in 2018 and converted it into a world-class basketball facility for the month of August where local high school teams can come in and work on drills with professional basketball coaches.
The West Loop gym is described as “a cultural hub for basketball, inspiration and the ultimate summer training program to help Chicago’s youth chase their dreams.”
The opening of the facility featured an appearance from Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen who spoke with young and ambitious basketball players who visited to hone their skills.
If you are a resident of Chicago that is past your high school basketball days you too can pop up at the Just Do It Hq for a game of hoops by registering here.
