An inspiring message from our team captain Bruce Nickles:

Join the St. James Harriers and our larger community in the YWCA’s 26th Annual Race Against Racism. We run/walk to raise awareness, name the need and help create an atmosphere of change. All proceeds support the YWCA’s Center for Racial & Gender Equity and their programs of education, training and advocacy.

Register for race (link is below) and then at the bottom of the registration check the box asking if you want to join a team – our team name is the Saint James Harriers. Any questions just email me or text me at 610-698-0407.  Feel free to forward this email to others who may be interested. Click here to email me. Thanks.

2023 Saint James Harriers

Each year, Saint James participates in the annual Race Against Racism to help support the YWCA’s social justice and advocacy programs. The YWCA is the oldest and largest multi-racial women’s organization in the world. Since its inception in 1855, it has been at the forefront of working for justice, equity and peace through the elimination of racism.

*In the 1830s, English schoolboys developed a game called Hares and Hounds: “Hounds” would chase “hares,” who would leave paper trails through woods and hills for the hounds to follow. A group of Londoners took up the game in 1867 as a way to stay in shape and adopted the name Harriers.
