2019 Black Family 5k National Walk & Thanksgiving Tradition!
Listen up Family & Friends,
(In my Harriet Tubman voice) We’ve been had, hoodwinked, bamboozled and led astray! These folks got us out here spending money we don’t have on things we don’t need all in the name of Black Friday and Holiday Shopping. It’s a straight up set up and GirlTrek knows it. That’s why three years ago we decided to join the #optoutside movement by inviting women to participate in a new holiday tradition – Black Family 5Ks! That’s right, we appropriated, rebranded and flipped a corporate holiday into a pre-Kwanza lovefest. We made Black Friday the new Black Holiday by inviting families to shake off the sweet potato ‘itis, put away the credit cards, gather up all the cousins who done snuck out to “go to the store” and hit the streets of our neighborhoods for some good ole’ fashion family fun.
WHO: GirlTrek Newnan Family & Friends...We invite you- Sisters, Brothers, Aunties, Uncles, Kids, Grandparents, Neighbors and Community to gather during the holiday weekend to walk together. This is a new tradition.
WHAT: Joining is super fun and easy. GirlTrek Newnan provides everything you need, including customizable race bibs and a special edition Black Family 5K shirt.
WHEN: Saturday Morning during our the Thanksgiving Break.
WHO: GirlTrek invites you to host a "Black Family 5K" with your family this Thanksgiving. Aunties, uncles, grandparents and neighbors will gather after dinner on Thursday or during the holiday weekend to walk together. This is a new tradition.
This Thanksgiving say nah to the nonsense and yes to a new family tradition!
Black love is Black wealth.
