Make a Difference for only $1 per day!

We are so excited to be back in person for our annual 365 Breakfast on Thursday, January 11th!  

This event is one of our most important as it raises essential funds for many of our programs that support Peoria Public Schools students, families, and staff.  In order to have the biggest impact, we are asking each breakfast attendee to become a member of our 365 Annual Giving Club with a donation of $365 (just $1 per day for a year).  Although, any donation amount is greatly appreciated!

With just $365, we can do so much!  This amount could provide 30 new uniforms for students in need, stock four of our schools' Little Free Pantries with a month's worth of food, or even keep the lights on for at least one month for a student whose family is struggling with their utility bill.

This year the breakfast will be held in the gymnasium at Woodruff Career & Technical Center with a delicious buffet-style breakfast prepared by Peoria Public Schools' own (award-winning!) culinary students.  Also, our featured speaker will be PPS alum and Bradley’s Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics, Chris Reynolds.  Read more about Dr. Reynolds' inspiring career below!  

A donation of $50 or more will reserve a spot at this important event.  Donate and reserve your breakfast seat TODAY!

Meet this year's speaker - Dr. Chris Reynolds!

Chris Reynolds was named Bradley University’s 10th Director of Athletics on March 17, 2015 and was elevated to the position of Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics in March of 2018.

Reynolds brings more than 20 years of distinguished experience to his position and since his arrival at Bradley, the Department of Athletics has made significant progress in multiple areas. The positive momentum generated by the Department over the past seven years has been marked by record-breaking achievements and a resurgence academically, athletically, and in the community.

On a national level, Reynolds serves as chair of the prestigious NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee and in the spring of 2021, he was selected as a NACDA Athletics Director of the Year recipient.

Prior to serving in his role at Bradley, Reynolds held senior level leadership positions in athletics administration at Northwestern University and Indiana University, and has served in the athletics departments at the University of Notre Dame, Western Michigan University, and Michigan State University.

Reynolds attended Peoria Public Schools and Indiana University, earning his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1993, a law degree in 1996 and a Ph.D. in 2012. As an undergraduate student, he was a four-year letterwinner in basketball and team captain his senior year. Reynolds helped lead IU to Big Ten titles in 1991 and 1993, as well as the 1992 Final Four. Reynolds and his wife, Katrina, have two children, Joshua (20) and Olivia (17).
