Reese, who led Hitch for 10 years, died in February 2014 of cancer.
Race organizer Chicago Police Lt. John Garrido, a member of the Hitch Local School Council, said the race would serve as the kickoff of a campaign to name the 5600 block of McVicker Avenue in Reese's memory.
Reese "worked tirelessly to bring the community together and always sought ways to increase school funding opportunities and build community relationships," Garrido said.
The run will start at 9 a.m. June 20 at Hitch, 5625 N. McVicker Ave.
