Race Champions, Heroes, and Buddies

A- A A+

Thank you to our Race Champions, Heroes, and Buddies!

In addition to bringing us all together in support of healing, equity, and community, the annual Race Against Hate is YWCA Evanston/North Shore’s biggest fundraiser, bringing in over $200,000 each year to support survivors of abuse in our domestic violence shelter, violence prevention programming in our schools, and racial and gender equity in our communities.

Thank you to all who honored the spirit of the 2020 Race Against Hate by wearing an old Race teeshirt and walking or running on your own in June, and by making a donation to support YWCA’s equity work in place of what would have been a race registration fee. Your donation supports, promotes, and advances YWCA Evanston/North Shore’s equity work in our communities.

You make it possible. Thank you!!!
