CHICAGO — Anthony Rizzo is asking Chicagoans to work out for a good cause.

The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation aims to raise at least $75,000 through the Champion Challenge on Sept. 13. Participants in the challenge will raise money from supporters and then work out for one hour at the Lakeview Athletic Club, earning themselves a chance to win prizes like a meet-and-greet with the Cubs’ first baseman or Cubs’ press box tickets.

Participants must raise at least $200. During the event, they’ll do cycling, body pumping and endurance exercises for 20 minutes each.

Afterward, attendees can win team awards and grab food, get drinks and take pictures in a photo booth, among other activities.

Registration for participants is $25, but people who wish to skip the workout can sign up as a Challenge Cheerleader for $20. Registration is available online.

All proceeds will benefit the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation. The foundation raises money for cancer research and for families of children diagnosed with cancer.
