San Diego, California, September 4th, 2022-
The 12th annual Increase the Peace events returns back to where it all started, at the Great Lincoln High School. After a two year hiatus, we are thrilled to get back to business! Sunday’s rallying point within the Southeast San Diego Community is where many of the top athletes in the county and community volunteers gather at the Lincoln High New Gym to support a worthy cause. Too many of society’s youth are subject to violence on a daily basis. In the urban community of Southeast San Diego it’s an unfortunate reality and often the families, friends, and educators wondering if this unnecessary violence will end in our generation. We are targeting bullying and violence in the schools and communities and having these players and parents to be a voice at their schools and communities. All players and parents will be asked to sign the Play Sober 365 pledge against underage drinking and smoking also the anti bullying pledge to stand up against bullying on their campus.
What makes this event so special, is it’s a not for profit or fame event. On this day a community can come together and celebrate what’s good about the children of our community. Their hopes and dreams of a better, safer tomorrow are dependent on our community leaders to teach our children to lead by example and hold themselves accountable.
There is always a sparkle of hope for the future, so come out and enjoy the moment and support this event, “Increase the Peace and Stop the Violence.” Individuals who have impacted the lives of the children in our community will be honored; their impact will be seen for future generations to come.
