Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the 9th Annual Peace Bowl, Youth Football Classic on Sunday August 16, 2015. Cincinnati youth hit the football field at Walnut Hills High School to spread a message of peace. Hundreds of parents, grandparents and other relatives came together to support the children and promote peace.

More about the Peace Bowl:
The Peace Bowl was founded in 2007 by Pastor Peterson Mingo, Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC) Community Outreach Advocate, with 8 youth football organizations participating. Funds raised at the Peace Bowl are used to pay league fees and buy football equipment for youth who otherwise would not be able to participate. The first Peace Bowl Tournament was interrupted by a homicide outside the gates of the game. Undaunted by this state of affairs, Pastor Mingo in 2008 collaborated with CHRC, and pressed forward. The Peace Bowl continues to be a yearly event that focuses on youth discipline, determination, training and methods to ‘Stop the Violence’ in the community. This event is a way for youth to learn to take control of their lives and hold themselves accountable for their decisions.
