Fundraiser for BUILD

Event Fundraiser: Strides For Peace - 2020 Race Against Gun Violence


BUILD’s mission is to engage at-risk youth in the schools and on the streets so they can realize their educational and career potential and contribute to the stability, safety and well-being of our communities. Since 1969, BUILD has been a second family for Chicago’s marginalized youth, helping thousands of young people facing the steepest challenges—like poverty, involvement in the justice system, and chronic exposure to violence and other sources of trauma—escape gang violence and become leaders in safer, stronger communities. BUILD now reaches 6,500 youth and families annually in six challenged Chicago neighborhoods—Austin, Garfield Park, Humboldt Park, Hermosa, Belmont Cragin, and Fuller Park.
