Black Family 5K

November 26, 2021

Start a new tradition this Thanksgiving holiday by joining GirlTrek’s Black Family 5K Walk on Black Friday. 


A New Black Friday Tradition

This Thanksgiving, gather your friends and family to reclaim Black Friday with a new family focused tradition.

GirlTrek is inviting thousands of families– chosen – biological – or otherwise entangled – to walk forward stronger together by hosting a Black Family 5K on Black Friday. 

We need this now more than ever. A reason to revel.  To reconnect. To rejoice with our loved ones. AND to shake off the trauma of this pandemic. 

Join us in rebranding a corporate holiday to center ourselves on kinship, health and fun.  Sign up to register TODAY and get ready to host your own Black Family 5K.

Our Collaborator

The national Release the Pressure (RTP) movement is bringing together thousands of Black women from across America — reminding them to make self-care a priority by taking the RTP Heart Health Pledge. RTP was founded in May 2020 by a diverse coalition of health care organizations and heart health experts – the American Medical Association (AMA), AMA Foundation, American Heart Association, Association of Black Cardiologists, National Medical Association and Minority Health Institute – who are dedicated to partnering with the Black community to improve heart health.
