1210 w 78th Pl. Chicago, Il
This year we will be putting on for the very first time an event to benefit the Cedric W Adkins - Malone Foundation, Hoopin for Peace.
Cedric Adkins - Malone, a 22 - year old assistant youth coach in the community, was shot while working on his car in front of his home earlier this year in March. Five days later Cedric passed away.
Cedric had quite an impact on the community. He was a positive role model to young athletes, to his friends, and to his family. He played for and later helped coach the boys basketball team at Community Youth Development Institute. He was known to always have a smile on his face, and continously worked hard at home, at work, and on the field.
To continue his legacy, we ask you to contribute to this gofundme. Contributions will allow children who could not affor to play organized sports have that oppurtunity across the city and surrounding suburbs
On average in the city of Chicago, 10 shootings occur each day. Even with removing over 4,300 guns from the street from Januaray to June, shootings are higher in Chicago than LA and New York. Homicides have increased 49 percent in 2017 alone.
It is extremely important to educate our children, friends, and family about gun violence. Providing Project Safe Neighborhoods, reducing the demand and supply for guns, and placing interventions into place, removing more guns off the streets are ways in which we can lower gun violence and keep our loved ones safe.
