Juneteenth Virtual 5k
Why We Do it
Last year we committed to running a 5k each month. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we knew we would need to switch things up to hit our goal. We googled some virtual runs to do and we also created a couple as well, which is where this run got its start. It seemed like there was a virtual 5k for just about anything you could think of, but there were not many that represented us...so we created one!
The Juneteenth Virtual 5k Run/Walk was birthed from the desire to not only stay physical fit, but to fuel our minds with knowledge and education of not only our culture but also our country and history. 47 states currently observe Juneteenth as a holiday. This 5k is to pay homage to a Holiday that all Americans should celebrate because it is American History.
Join us on this virtual 5k journey.
