Support children in some of Chicago’s most divested communities and your favorite NCAA team at the same time by signing up for a bracket or two in Chicago Youth Centers’ March Mayhem tournament! Our top brackets will snag some GREAT PRIZES!

You can sign up through the form below to participate. Start building your ultimate bracket on Selection Sunday, March 17, 2019! Your picks must be made by Thursday, March 21, 2019, before the first game tips off and the tournament begins. The link to build your bracket will be in the confirmation email. REGISTRATION HAS NOW CLOSED FOR MARCH MAYHEM.

We suggest a donation of $20 per bracket. The donation is optional, but a donation of any value will support high quality youth development programs that enable youth to discover their full potential and overcome generational cycles of poverty!

Thanks for playing… good luck!
