Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate
June 19 - June 20$10 – $25
Join us for the 2021 (somewhat) virtual Race Against Hate!
Each year for the last 21, we have joined our communities for the Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate. This year it feels as vital as ever to support racial equity and justice. We hope you’ll join us this year for what will be a (somewhat) virtual Race.
Registration ($25 for adults, $10 for youth 13 and under) includes a commemorative tech Race t-shirt (which you’ll be able to purchase/pick up at the Crowded Closet or Shop for Good starting June 1!), and all registrants will be honored as Race Heroes on our website.
What is a somewhat virtual Race? We don’t have a start/finish line or specified gathering time, but we’re encouraging you to wear your t-shirt and take a 5 or 10K walk or run on Race weekend (June 19/20, or really, anytime in June) to support the cause. Reach out to family, friends, and co-workers to ask them to join you to run or walk on the Evanston lakefront, or anywhere you feel comfortable.
