It’s Not Too Late: Race Against Hate

It’s not to late to register for the Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate on June 19th, sponsored by the YWCA Evanston/ North Shore.

Now in its seventeenth year, the event was “launched to honor the legacy of Ricky Byrdsong and bring attention to the need to combat hatred in all its forms.”

I will be participating (sans walking poles) in the 5K Walk starting at 7:45 am, there are also 5K and 10K runs and a fun youth mile for participants. Online registration is now closed, but there are still 2 days remaining to register at package pickup locations. Leave me a comment below if you are participating so I can make sure to meet up with you!

If you can’t participate, consider showing your support with a donation to the YWCA Evanston/North Shore. Proceeds will support their racial justice and violence prevention programming.
