The run started on August 24, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. and finished around 10:30 a.m.. The run/walk was sponsored by Chicago Area Project thru a grant from the State of Illinois. As each youth participant finished the run/walk, they were given a school bag with school supplies. The run/walk was to promote peace in our community and saying no to Violence. All the participants were excited and happy to be a part of this event.
