Welcome to Meredith's Page for the Race Against Hate
We are participating as a team in the 19th annual Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate sponsored by the YWCA Evanston/North Shore. Each year, the Race Against Hate brings together thousands of people from all over Chicagoland to run and walk in unity and against racial hatred and violence.
The Race memorializes Ricky Byrdsong, former Northwestern University men’s basketball coach, who, while walking with two of his children, was murdered by a white supremacist. The Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate was launched to honor his legacy and bring attention to the need to combat hatred in all of its forms.
All proceeds from the Race Against Hate benefit YWCA Evanston/North Shore, in particular its racial justice programming and violence prevention education for young people. For information about YWCA Evanston/North Shore and its programs, you can visit www.ywca.org/evanston.
We hope you will join the team or at least sponsor our Chicago NOW members run/walk as we Race Against Hate! Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up! We greatly appreciate your support and hope to see you all there running or walking along with us!
