OUR MISSION

Alanna McCargo

Vice President
Alanna manages our ever-important relationships, outreach and partnerships in the communities we serve.

About Us

Our choice for peace comes with a pledge to help victims of hate and violence.  It is always the right time to support each other and to send the message that peace is more powerful than hate.

We accomplish this by hosting and participating in charity race events around the country, providing education, and supporting victims of hate and violence.

We envision a country where people embrace the responsibility of treating each other with respect and where difference is acknowledged, celebrated, and accepted as a catalyst for peace.

It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make sure our organization is reaching out to as many communities as it can so people everywhere have the chance to learn about the power of peace. We are fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.
Races for Peace promotes the conscious choice to act in peace, acknowledge the connectedness of all people, and value all human life equally regardless of differences.
