Race Against Gun Violence – Strides For Peace

Race Against Gun Violence – Strides For Peace

There is a race for every age and fitness level, as well as opportunities to volunteer. it’s a family-friendly evening to celebrate the life-changing work for Strides for Peace’s nonprofit partners and provide a platform for people who care about ending gun violence in Chicago to connect and get involved. Strides for Peace has nine Community Partners and 49 Affiliates who are the beneficiaries of the event.

We believe all of Chicagoland has a stake in ending gun violence and that by working together, we change more than the narrative of our city – we save lives. By focusing on what we share in common, we can find new ways to support the work on the ground and bring out the best in our city.

The 8K and 5K runs are USATF-certified, with a beautiful, lakefront course. There is also a 2- mile walk and a Tots for Peace sprint for children 2-10 years old. Opportunities to participate as a volunteer or virtual runner are also available.
