Girl Trek: Walking With Pride, Honor, Grace
GirlTrek: We know that Black women face a health crisis. We know that we are dying faster and at higher rates than any other group of women in America from preventable diseases like heart disease, stroke and diabetes. These diseases are obesity-related and 4 out of 5 of us are over a healthy weight. That's real talk. We also know that we need more than talk. This year, 15,000 Black women and girls walked with GirlTrek. This obesity crisis ain't nothing compared to the road we've traveled. Things change when women walk. Things changed when Harriet Tubman walked. Things changed when boycotters in Montgomery walked. When we walk, things WILL change. We are inspired! What would happen if a million of us trekked? Let's put the "move" back in movement.
