This family event will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2017, beginning 8 a.m., at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center. The efforts are to raise money for scholarships for area students attending any of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and support of the Minority Health Fair on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 

The purpose of this race is Awareness, History, and Health. The host location of the event will be the Bessie Smith Cultural Center. The weekend of events will start Friday with an HBCU College Fair and packet pick up for run/walk participants.
