The Power of Walking

"Proudly wearing my crown that I earned from GirlTrek's May Challenge. I’m still vibrating highly from all the amazingness at #GeleDay2016, it’s only natural that I carry that energy forward."

"Girltrek! What can I say but Wow! Inspirational! I went from walking for better health to running. The best part is all the new sister's I've gained!"

"Black women are dying in silence over something that could really be stopped. I want to be part of the walking revolution. I want to be part of the movement, doing something good for the community."

"GirlTrek gave me a new family of sisters who root for me and encourage me. I was diagnosed with MS and GirlTrek has been a significant part of my healing journey. I’ve walked in half marathons, hiked up mountains and learned to prioritize my self care, with this movement."

"I’ve always lived a healthy lifestyle, but to be able to do it in community with other Black women has been amazing! My favorite thing is taking my superhero blue shirt with me on vacation and getting my trek on in a beautiful new place."

"Someday we will be the ancestors – guiding the steps of those who have come after us; letting them know about the power of walking for #BlackGirlHealing. Whether it be under 100-year-old oak trees or through city streets, Black mothers and daughters everywhere will be able to shine their light so bright that they are able to walk themselves to better health."
