Recent events have forced to me to revisit my privilege in a challenging way. I’m figuring out how to find my voice in all of this - what I can do to change 400 years of systemic injustice.
What started as a small, personal fitness goal has grown into a fight against racial violence and inequality. I'd like to invite friends and family to join me in an opportunity to take action. This year for my 27th birthday, I'll be hosting a 27K race against racism, ‘Run for Racial Justice’. Participants are welcome to run, hike, bike, skateboard, whatever gets you moving - it can be in one day or over the course of many. The official race day will be Sunday, August 30th. With three months to go, my hope is that we can get as many participants as possible and that people who want to train for the full 27K can do so. One hundred percent of all entry fees will be donated to the NAACP and the Equal Justice Initiative.
I hope you’ll join me in a commitment to do more and be better.
