Why We Run

The Race Against Gun Violence has always been a metaphor for what drives and inspires people in the fight against gun violence.

This year, the race may be virtual, but the need to connect to others who care and dream of a Chicago where all can thrive,
is more important than ever. So, we’re asking people to tell us why they run when they join the race.

Scroll through the quotes to see what people are saying, why they have a stake in ending gun violence, and who and what they “run” for.

Connect. Commit. Contribute. Change. Be Part of Building Peace.
