Play for Peace hosts 5K run Sept. 21

Play for Peace to Hold Seventh Annual World Peace Day 5K Run/Walk on September 21

A community celebration for Bartlett-area runners and families will celebrate peace and raise funds to help children and youth around the globe.  

Play for Peace is an official partner of the Illinois Gun Violence Prevention Coalition.

On September 21, 2019, Play for Peace will host its seventh annual Fall 5K Run/Walk in honor of World Peace Day. The event, which takes place at the Bartlett Nature Center in Bartlett, IL, will support the organization’s mission to bring together children, youth, and organizations from communities affected by conflict—such as violence, discrimination, poverty, and natural disaster—using cooperative play to create laughter, compassion, and peace. The organization, which operates in more than 20 countries around the globe, also provides youth leadership programs, which help young people become peace builders in their communities.
