The Chicago Jokers, a PeeWee team who won the Chicago title, want to compete in the National Championship in Orlando next month, but their families can't afford to send them.
The children come from at-risk, low-income areas.
"We're trying to raise $23,000 for this trip," said Coach Eric McClendon. "The kids are going to be gone for a week, we're talking travel, food room and board, and the things they are going to need for this event."
