Going on seven years now, the Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance (AHBCUAA) has galvanized thousands of HBCU alumni, family and friends in support of health awareness and scholarship with their annual 5k/10k Run-Walk. This year's event takes stages from Grant Park on Saturday, June 28.
The theme, Run For You, Run For Them, Run For Us, highlights our three-fold purpose: Run For You embodies the health aspect and the importance of getting active,Run For Them represents the scholarship dollars raised for future students of the great participating HBCUs, and Run For Us represents the strength and success we achieve when we work collectively.
Both the 5K and 10K are USA Certified Track and Field courses. This event is open to everyone, and various alumni groups have created teams to compete and re-connect. #Team WCLK will feature several of our team members, including Wendy Williams, Debb Moore, Kiplyn Primus, Aaron Cohen and Shed Jackson.
