Join us Saturday, September 10th at 8:30 a.m. as Northwest Side Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC) hosts a Stop the Violence: Walk/Run for Peace on Milwaukee’s North Side.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, incidences of crime, homicide, domestic violence, and reckless driving have increased dramatically in the City of Milwaukee. The goal of this Walk/Run for Peace is to have the community come together to focus on solutions as to how we can promote change, create healthy lifestyles, and encourage positive behavior within our neighborhoods.
Building a culture of peace in our community will be a continuous effort. It will take all of us working together to meet this need. The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for individuals and families, one neighborhood and one block at a time.
The 3.9 mile Walk/Run will start and end at the Century City Tower (4201 N. 27th Street). Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and we will depart at 9 a.m.
We will provide free t-shirts, snacks, and a water stop along the route. Resources and other giveaway items will be available after the Walk/Run.
Free parking is available in the lot behind the Century City Tower building (enter lot from Hope Avenue).
Rain date: Saturday, September 17th (same time & location)
