Our streets are all connected.
Chicago's violence epidemic impacts us all.
Support is needed to help young people heal from trauma.
These are the reasons UCAN, St. Pauls United Church of Christ, and our surrounding Chicago neighbors are coming together to #StartTheLove at our 5th annual Polar Peace March!
Event Schedule - NEW TIME!
10:00 AM - Worship Service
11:15 AM - Peace March Begins (*Mini-March also begins)
12:15 PM - Reception
All registered marchers will be entered into a raffle to win one of many prizes donated by Target AND will receive a warm hat sponsored by Blue Sky Marketing to take home. Please note that all marchers MUST create individual pages BEFORE creating a team page in order to be entered in our raffle.
* The Mini March is an option for families with children ages 7 and under or anyone who would prefer a shorter walk. Activities include a 2-3 block walk, a cheering section with signs for marchers, and a service project crafted just for little ones. No separate registration is required to participate.
All marchers will receive a UCAN hat:
