Race Against Hate 2018


Dear Peace Frogs,

What a good looking bunch of Frogs you are! I'm excited to get out on the 5K trail with you (walkers) and cheer on the runners! Our walk is just 7 days away (6/17/18!). Anything could happen with the weather, but we'll have a good time whatever the weather.

The 5K runners will start running at around 7:50. Let's meet up at 7:30 to stretch and do whatever your pre-race rituals are. We'll meet at the Northeast corner of Long Field (that's the southwest corner of Sheridan and Milburn on the Northwestern campus. I'll be the guy with the coffee cup.

Let's take a look at our fundraising efforts... hmmm. We have a lot of Potential! Parents, this is a great opportunity to donate to your running/walking Kids. Couples, a perfect opportunity to show some love to each other. People with parents, or friends or coworkers or (be creative- fill in the blank)- those folks would probably like to support you in your efforts to raise money for this important cause: Donations support programs aimed at creating safe, violence-free communities. The YWCA's mission through the Race is eliminating racism and empowering women. I think it's safe to say we're all for that :)

Packet Pick-up and Goody Bags: Pick-up locations dates and times are under the Event Info tab on the main website. For those of you coming from far away, if you'd like us (Bob, Gail and Alex) to pick up your bib and goody bag (while supplies last), please let us know and send your T-shirt size. I believe they run smallish- no promises.

Post-Race Brunch, Anyone? It looks like there are about 16 of us on the team. Please let me know if you'd like to join, and I'll make a reservation for somewhere yummy in Evanston- I'm thinking Flat Top.

Lastly- Thank you! Thanks for being a part of this. Thanks for your generosity, your time and for just being so cool.

See you there!
Captain Bob
