The Race Against Gun Violence is a rallying point to raise funds for and awareness about what is being done to reduce gun violence and build Chicago’s future. It is an opportunity to change the narrative about Chicago, call concerned citizens to action and show the world that Chicago can come together to solve the problem of gun violence. There are multiple ways to participate in the race: as a runner, a sponsor, a fundraiser/contributor, a volunteer, a Community Partner and a Community Affiliate. Join in the movement -- every stride counts!
Strides for Peace was founded to bring people and organizations together to reduce gun violence, create a safer Chicago, and save lives. We believe that while there is no easy answer, no one strategy that will stop the violence, we can find new ways to support the work on the ground, in the communities most impacted, for the those who are at greatest risk.
