Mother’s Day 5K Walk for Peace

Chicago – Glenview Community Church
San Diego – Cardiff Elementary School
TIME: 8 am – 12 pm CT/PT

Kicking off Hands of Peace “20 Years Planting Peace” Benefit Weeks in Chicago and San Diego, the 5K Mother’s Day Walk for Peace honors the vision of Juliet Ward Howe, who called for a Mother’s Day dedicated to peace in honor of mothers who lost their sons and husbands during the U.S. Civil War. Howe urged mothers around the world to lead their countries to work for peace “in the name of womanhood and of humanity.” 

Invite your moms, children and friends — you can also create teams and raise sponsorships. Can’t do it that day? That’s ok! You can walk anywhere in the world on any day during Chicago and San Diego Benefit Weeks. All walk participants get a commemorative 20 Year Walk for Peace T-shirt.

Honor your mom and become a 5K “We Love Mom” sponsor for the Chicago Walk or the San Diego Walk and mom will be recognized on a poster at the Walk, on the Benefit website and at the Benefit, plus you get (8) 5K Walk Registrations to bring the whole family. Or become a 5K Walk T-Shirt Sponsor for the Chicago Walk or the San Diego Walk and you’ll be recognized on the Mother’s Day 5K T-Shirt, on the Benefit website and at the Benefit.
