From the stage setup, to the upbeat music, to the healthy snacks and beverages, the entire event,  was sponsered by Gold Sponsors, Jesse Singh from Remax1, Pawa Trucking, Countryside Church and Grand Sponsors, UGM and Precision Stone Designs. Without the support and help of the sponsors and special guests and all the attendees the event would not be possible 

The Chief Guest, Cook Country Commissioner for the 14th District of the Cook County Board, Mr. Scott Britton kicked off the race at 7:35AM. Mr. Britton brought all runners and walkers together and everyone took a pledge to unite against hate, to welcome all people, regardless of their background or identity, and to support tolerance and justice, The values that align with Oneness and unite us as ONE

What Oneness Means

The morning was concluded with a special activity asking the crowd, “What does Oneness Mean to You?” Runners and walkers were encouraged to share their answers on sticky notes. For some “Oneness” means 'acceptance and community’, while others shared that it means ‘love for all’. Participants were given small prizes for entering this raffle.
