BENEFITING: PLAY FOR PEACE
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2016
Play for Peace will host its fourth annual 5k Walk for Peace at the Bartlett Nature Center. The family-friendly event brings children, youth and adults together for the fundraising walk that helps support Play for Peace Clubs in Chicago and around the world. The Walk for Peace is part of a larger World Peace Day Celebration, which coincides with celebrations around the world in honor of the United Nations’ International Day of Peace. It includes music, face painting, cooperative games, an international food festival, a silent auction and display booths hosted by community organizations. We also aim to have designated areas across the 5K stretch, where our practice peace trainers facilitate cooperative games. The event is supported by children, families, business owners and community leaders from nearly 20 communities, including Bartlett and neighboring Lombard, Schaumburg, and West Chicago.
