Get ready to lace up for the 11th Annual West Akron African American Wellness 5K Race! On August 3, 2024, join us as we sprint beyond last year's records in a celebration of fitness, unity, and change. This isn't just a race; it's a movement to combat health disparities like diabetes and high blood pressure, and to rally for educational resources for our kids. Born from the compassionate vision of Mary Anderson, a Buchtel alum and two-time Iraq War veteran, we're turning strides into opportunities and fostering community resilience, including tackling COVID-19 with education and vaccinations. Whether you're running, walking, or showing your support from the sidelines, every step you take helps us confront these critical challenges head-on. Come be part of a day that’s more than a race—it's a lifeline for our children and our community's future!
