On Sunday, June 17, over 25 Leapfrog Online employees ran, walked, and volunteered at 2012’s Race Against Hate in Evanston. The event was as fun as it was inspiring, and Leapfrog Online was thrilled to take part in such an important symbol of unity and hope, both as active participants and as corporate sponsors.
This was the 13th year for the Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate, which was launched to honor the late Byrdsong and raise awareness about fighting all forms of hatred. Byrdsong, a former Northwestern University Basketball coach and VP at Aon Corporation, was killed in a hate crime in Skokie in 1999. The Race Against Hate sees thousands of people gather together every year to turn such a tragic event into a story of community pride and hope for the future.
Leapfrog Online was proud to be a part of this year’s event, and we look forward to participating in the Race Against Hate for years to come.
