About the African American Male Wellness Initiative - (AAWALK)
The goal of the National African American Male Wellness Initiative is to raise awareness for preventable health diseases. The overall health and wellness of the black community is dependent on the health of black men in the community. African American men are dying from preventable diseases at ten (10) times the rate of other men which drives the mission of AAWALK. Each WALK Male participant must register and be screened by health professionals to Walk or Run. There is no cost for health screening or fee to race. It is a family affair and all are welcome to enjoy the event with many activities for everyone in attendance.
