Focusing on health and wellness is paramount to uplifting and moving our communities onward and upward. I am excited to invite you to participate in our Run the Yard Twilight 3K on April 11, 2023, to encourage us to prioritize health and wellness. This event is being held during Bulldog Fest.
The leading causes of death among African Americans are heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer, ailments which can often be attributed to a sedentary lifestyle. Physical activity, along with a well-balanced diet, is a proven method of mitigating various detrimental mental and physical health conditions, which is why highlighting the positive effects of movement is the heart of my platform. Not only is the Run the Yard Twilight 3K a chance for us to come together as a community and move our bodies, but it also provides a golden opportunity to support students by fundraising for need-based scholarships.
Please feel free to participate as individuals or teams. Wear your paraphernalia to represent your organization.
