Cutler Runs a Benefit Race for Kids in Naperville

Jay Cutler wasn’t able to run around much in the NFC Title game vs the Packers due to his bum knee, but two months later, he was running around just fine when he took part in a Naperville benefit race for kids.

Longtime Naperville mayor George Pradel mentioned but downplayed the presence of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler at Sunday’s event for a local non-profit.

“Jay Cutler’s here today,” Pradel told attendees, “but that’s not the main focus. “It’s for the kids.” Just the way Cutler wanted it.

Event organizers made it abundantly clear to reporters and adults that Cutler wouldn’t be commenting at the benefit for NCO Youth & Family Services, held at the Calamos Investments campus in Naperville. And when the emcee asked Cutler to address everyone after the awards presentation, Cutler politely declined.

“He was here for the kids,” said NCO executive director Ron Hume. Connected to the event by his six-year-old cousin, Cutler didn’t just make a cursory appearance. He joined 300-plus kids in a one-mile run.
