Thank you to all who came out to honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by participating in our Caravan. The Caravan was produced by Chandler4Change and the Chandler Men of Action. Approximately 100 cars, motorcycles, and bicycles joined together to drive a 7-mile route through Chandler. Volunteers from BASE Arizona, CUSD students, and community members turned out to help make this event a HUGE SUCCESS! Although the City of Chandler was not an official partner in the Caravan, we were supported by the Chandler police and fire departments.
