Ditch the Weight & Guns 5K Walk & Run is an organization that promotes and raises awareness of nutrition, physical activity, and gun violence prevention in underserved communities in Chicago.
We present Englewood 5K, Chatham 5K, Roseland 5K, three closed course races held on the South side of Chicago.
There exist an unquestionable correlation between obesity and poverty, and poverty and crime. Lack of fresh fruits and vegetables, inadequate medical resources, and a failing school system are a few causations of social disorganization.
It is the objective “Ditch the Weight & Guns” to organize and host peaceful community-led events. Please feel free to participate, volunteer, and/or sponsor Englewood 5K, Chatham 5K, and/or Roseland 5K. We appreciate your suppport and please follow/like us on social media.
