Our streets are all connected.
Chicago’s violence epidemic impacts us all.
Support is needed to help young people heal from trauma.
These are the reasons UCAN, St. Pauls United Church of Christ, and our surrounding Chicago neighbors are coming together to #StartTheLove at our 5th annual Polar Peace March!
All registered marchers will be entered into a raffle to win one of many Target gift cards AND will receive a warm hat sponsored by Blue Sky Marketing to take home. Please note that all marchers MUST create individual pages BEFORE creating a team page in order to be entered in our raffle.
UCAN’s overall mission is to build strong youth and families through compassionate healing, education and empowerment. All proceeds for this event support UCAN’s Violence Intervention and Prevention Serviceswhich empowers young people to create life-changing opportunities that ensure safer futures. UCAN works with schools and other community partners to build resilience, influence behavior and reinforce learning opportunities to avoid the pitfalls of violence.
