A Belated Happy Harriet Day!
Ladies! It's time to kick off our trekking season with a celebration! Araminta "Harriet Tubman" Ross is the official inspiration of the GirlTrek movement. Her life's work models the mission by first saving ourselves, and then reaching back to help others.
This Harriet Day Celebration will be three-fold; a morning of learning to organize a trek [walk], a fun trek through UNC Charlotte's campus, & an opportunity to fellowship with the lovely women of the Charlotte movement. Bring a friend....Actually bring five! We're trying to get 1 million women walking by 2020.
We'll walk about 1.5 miles in a 30 minute trek. The route is paved, but the campus is hilly. Please wear appropriate walking-athletic shoes, clothing for the chilly weather, and your superhero blue! Shop on the website if you don't already have some.
Parking: If you are entering campus from the main entrance [Broadrick Boulevard], you will enter the round-about and take the second exit to continue on Broadrick. You'll make a left onto University Road. Then, you'll drive down about 400 feet, past the Cone Center building to make a quick right turn onto Cone Lane. A few of the streets are unmarked, so you'll need to rely on your GPS as a guide. You'll know you're at Cone Lane when you see the large parking deck to the front-right side of you. When you've made the turn onto Cone Lane, drive up the hill to the Visitor Parking Entrance. The gate should be open, as the university does not charge for parking on weekends. Drive up the ramp and park your car. You'll be on the second floor, but there is no reason to walk down the stairs. Find the small sky bridge to cross the street toward the Cone Center. Enter the second floor of the building and take a slight right toward room 210. You'll see the superhero blue waiting for you.
Children are welcomed to attend, especially your daughters, nieces, & god-daughters. We want them to learn about the movement too! Light refreshments will be served.
