In honor of Weusi Olusola, over $3700 raised for the Pioneers for Peace Program
DETROIT, MICHIGAN — The first annual Weusi Olusola Peace Day was held at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) on Monday, August 10, 2009. The Park West Foundation participated, sending members of its recently launched Blue Babies initiative to help out with the festivities. The Blue Babies participated in all of the events held throughout the day from distributing Peace buttons to serving free refreshments to attending a Peace Day Celebration.
Over $3700 was raised, not including the vacation days that some RIM employees generously donated. All of the donations will support RIM’s Pioneers for Peace program, which works to spread its message of peace throughout the community.
Peace Day was created to honor the memory of former President and Program Director of Pioneers for Peace, Weusi Olusola. Weusi passed away earlier this year after battling cancer. His life’s mission was to educate and reach out to the community in the hopes of ending violence.
