ProjectHOOD will Kick-Off the Summer with a 5K Walk and a 10K Run, culminating with a Peace and Health Rally.  Our city needs something that will foster collaboration and community.  Going into the summer, it's no secret, history has suggested that our children are at a greater risk of exposure to violence and we need something that will produce hope.  Chicago is a runners' city and in conjunction with the City of Chicago and others, this could ideally be the event of the year!
