Race for the Cure...



I ran in the Race for the Cure this morning in honor of my paternal grandmother (still living) and maternal great-grandmother (deceased), who are breast cancer survivors. With breast cancer on both sides of my family, I pray that I'll never have to run for myself. It was a great event. There were thousands of people there. BUT....

The one thing that was disappointing was the lack of Black people running. In my best guess we made up about 2% of the runners. The Black people that were there to walk all looked a french fry a way from a heart attack. I think we need more health education in our community. I'm working on a plan... Stay tuned.
