The Providence Powerhouse Official Kickoff!!!
This is the official GirlTrek SuperHero Saturday Kickoff for Providence, RI! The Rhode Island Coalition of Black Women is joining us as we enjoy an empowering walk and some fresh air, celebrating sisterhood and self-care.
Every Saturday is SuperHero Saturday, we meet at the top of the path at Hope and Blackstone Blvd. Your Neighborhood Captain will be there waiting to welcome you and we will stretch and start our walk.
The path is 1.6 miles long but we may not walk the whole thing, depending on consensus of our group. It is constructed of pavement and gravel, however one portion is under construction so we will walk on the street for a short while. We will complete our walk in 30 minutes to 1 hour. 🏃🏾♀️
NO ONE WILL EVER BE LEFT BEHIND, which means that no matter how fast or slow you walk, we will not leave you! We only encourage everyone to listen to their body and do their very best. We arrive together, celebrate together, and leave together. All ages, abilities, and fitness levels are welcome.
Each week, we walk down preventive diseases and participate in the radical movement toward taking self-care seriously! Our goal is to walk at least 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week to save our own lives and our communities!
So, put on your walking shoes👟and comfortable, loose-fitting clothing (We may have some swag to give away too 😉) Bring a cloth, water, a jacket🧥 and your beautiful positive energy👍🏾! Come with us as we follow in the footsteps of our ancestors, by walking to bring about change in our communities and our health. Please watch my Facebook page or this link for our bad weather location if conditions are unfavorable. I can always be contacted via the email address and phone number above if you are unable to make it or have a problem. See you out there!
