2018 sponsorships opportunities are now available for
Strides for Peace’s 5th Annual Race Against Gun Violence, Chicago’s largest athletic event supporting nonprofit organizations working to reduce gun violence in our community.

We offer a full range of on-site, digital and collateral marketing benefits as well as a one-of-a kind experience for civic and employee engagement. Our 2017 Race Against Gun Violence brought together a diverse group of active and passionate individuals representing more than 150 zip codes and over 50 civic, corporate, and nonprofit partners who share the goal of saving lives and building a safer Chicago.

The 2018 Race Against Gun Violence will be held in Grant Park the evening of June 7th. There is a race for every age or level of fitness, featuring USATF-certified 8k and 5k races, as well as a 2 mile walk and Tots for Peace sprint.

The Race Against Gun Violence is a special platform for those who want to bring out the best in their city, which is why in April 2017 the Chicago City Council passed a Resolution in support of the race and the critical need to bring Chicago together to celebrate the life-saving work taking place every day.

We welcome the opportunity to explore how the race aligns with your organization’s civic engagement and marketing goals.
