For me, it comes down to mothers and children. Treating Black mothers and women with the care and respect they deserve, loving their children as I do my own and supporting their mental health and creativity. Lastly, it’s loving these children no matter their differences, sexual orientation or gender identities. So these children grow up learning self-love, self-worth and know they are supported in who they were born as and what their future holds. We must implement support in pursuit of change so they can experience a different world than the one thats lasted far too long. That change isn’t going to happen with just a run.

Join me in this virtual 5k as we run to raise money in support of these organizations doing the WORK. In support of Black lives and in honor of all the Black lives taken too soon. We’ve got a lot of work to do and it’s not going to be a sprint. This is a life long marathon. With the support of BOB gear, I changed the intention of my sponsorship. I am donating $300. $100 for every mile. I am also donating the payment i’ve received from this partnership in its entirety. I’d love to see you tag and document your 5K in addition to mentioning who you are running for. And to those who love a “race”….match me.
