CHICAGO – In January, women strongly opposed to President Donald Trump's inauguration rolled out the "Pussy Hat Project" during a major Washington DC protest march. 

Evidently, that's not the last of the effort.

Persons in pink hats will be running down the streets of Chicago the first Saturday of November to raise money for female-focused groups like Chicago NOW and abortion-promoting groups like Personal PAC and Planned Parenthood of Illinois (despite PP of IL already getting hundreds of thousands of federal and state taxpayer dollars).

The first annual Pink Hat Run Chicago’s 2017 beneficiaries include Access LivingChicago Foundation for Women (CFW)Chicago Women Take Action (CWTA)Fierce Over 40Mujeras Latinas en AcciónChicago National Organization for WomenPersonal PACPlanned Parenthood of IllinoisA Sister’s HopeWomen’s March on Chicago and YWCA Metropolitan Chicago.

The 5K/1 mile run, walk or roll will start on Prairie Avenue in the South Loop neighborhood, next to the Women’s Park & Gardens.

The PinkHatRun.com registration fee includes a t-shirt and – you guessed it – a pink hat.
