“Run for Repair” is a virtual marathon to raise funds for the Community Repair Fund, promote the Reparations Ambassador Program and educate communities all around on Reparations.
Reparations Ambassadors are white and non-Black people committed to taking on the burden of learning about reparations, talking to others about reparations, and raising funds to repair harm done to the Black community so that it does not fall on Black people alone. These funds will go into a public "Community Repair Fund" to serve as direct cash payments.
Event date: July 1st - July 31st 2022
Each entry will receive a t-shirt and free admission to walk or bike in the Evanston 4th of July parade.
Participants will have the entire month of July to complete the marathon.
Participants may run, walk, bike, skate or use a treadmill.
All proceeds for the marathon will go to the Community Repair Fund.
Anyone around the world can participate.
Donations are welcomed and tax deductible.
