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.
