Starts at 119th & Western; Ends at Howard & Western

In 2020, a small group of staff and supporters of Pursue Scholars walked the entire 24 miles of Western Ave. in Chicago to raise awareness and money. By the time it was finished, we had doubled our initial financial goal and raised $100,000 to invest in emerging urban leaders. We called the campaign Pursue Unity.

For Pursue Unity 2021, three of our brightest young scholars will be leading the way as they have committed to walking the entire 24 miles on September 25th. Through their leadership, we are seeking to raise $200,000 this year. These funds will support the Pursue Scholars Persistence Initiative.

Help us reach our goal!

A generous supporter of Pursue Scholars has offered to match all gifts given to the campaign. So your gift will be doubled in helping us reach our goal. Payment for sponsorship or registration can be made here or by mailing a check written to Pursue Scholars to PO Box 12568, Chicago, IL 60612
