Volunteer for the Race Against Hate

As one of the 2019 sponsors of this annual YWCA Evanston/North Shore anti-racism, First Church needs your help!   

Can you run or walk the 10K (6.2 miles) or the 5K (3.1 miles)?  Hand out water at a water station near Lunt Park?  Cheer on runners/walkers with signs and noisemakers on at a Cheer Zone? 

Please complete the following.  If you want to purchase a First Church T-shirt to support the cause and our church on race day (and any day), click here.
