2021 Pedal for Peace: Bike, Run or Walk in Your Barrio
September 26, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Every year, CRLN and partner organizations in Illinois host Pedal for Peace, which raises funds that connect us with communities in Latin America and immigrant communities in Illinois. People everywhere have their dreams and goals for receiving education, access to health care, and a chance to participate in meaningful ways as citizens. This year, Pedal for Peace raises funds for 6 different projects that help people realize these dreams. Click here for project descriptions, to donate online, or to sign up to bike, run or walk to help fundraise. Registration is free. You must sign up on line to register, but you may donate by check if you prefer. Make your check out to CRLN, put the name of the team you support in the memo line, and mail it to CRLN, 5655 S.
