#HARRIET and GIRLTREK KICK-OFF WALK
"I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other." -- Harriet Tubman (1820 - March 10, 1913)
On this date, we honor the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad on the anniversary of her passing.
On March 10, 2019, join Girltrek Oakland for their Annual Girltrek Season Kick-off and Walk to Honor our Shero Harriet Tubman.
Girltrekkers will meet under the Columns at Lake Merritt (between Lakeshore and Grand Ave) at 8:00 am sharp. We will take a slightly different route around Lake Merritt (to mix it up a bit) to complete our 3.2 mile trek.
Girltrek bags and a copy of THE HARRIET HANDBOOK of a 1000 Walks will be given to the first 3 newcomers that join us!
Plenty of programs going on in our communities on March 10 to honor and pay homage to Sista Harriet, so let this walk get you up and movin’ so you can enjoy the rest of the day’s activities! And remember Girltrekkers, any #Harriet parties planned for that day or evening, make sure to post the info!!🙋🏾♀️👍🏾💪🏽🤛🏾🏃🏾♀️🏃🏾♀️🏃🏾♀️!
Please make sure to log on to www.girltrek.org, click on “Find a Walk” and RSVP!
