Strides for Peace believes that 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.


Our Race Against Gun Violence is a family-friendly evening to celebrate the life changing work of local community organizations working to end gun violence, and provide a platform for people who care about ending gun violence in Chicago to connect and get involved. Individual runners and teams register online to raise funds before the race in order to support the work of Strides for Peace's nonprofit Community Partners and Affiliates. We offer a race for every age and fitness level, as well as opportunities to volunteer. The 8k and 5k runs are USATF Certified, with a beautiful course running along the lake. 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.
