About the Event

The COVID-19 pandemic has not and will not stop us; our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women still continues – *more so now than ever before!* We believe this starts with recognizing our country’s long history with racism and its impact on our systems, structures and institutions. If we want a just, peaceful society, it is our mutual responsibility to address racism and we encourage everyone to do just that by participating in the VIRTUAL Race Against Racism 2020.

We all know a 5k race cannot end racism, but what it CAN and WILL do is provide an opportunity for our community to come together, have some fun and show our united support for making a difference, wherever that might be in the Quad Cities. When hundreds of women, men and children run and walk through the streets of the Quad Cities, we will all be able to feel the energy. It might look different for 2020, but you CAN and SHOULD participate in this important event.

*HOW IT WORKS:* Anytime during the month of October (October 1-31, 2020), we want you to lace up your running/walking shoes and hit the pavement to take a stand against racism. Remember, this can be done wherever you are -- on a treadmill, on a trail, around a track, or even the race course from 2019! Participants will connect their experiences and offer encouragement to others by posting on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and tagging us and utilizing the hashtag #RaceAgainstRacismQC.
