Racism is a public health crisis.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that racism, both structural and interpersonal, has a direct, negative effect on the mental and physical health of millions of people in America. This is even more intensified as our nation continues to face the intersecting crises of COVID-19 and racism.

Race Forward 2-Day 5K is an opportunity for us to come together in the spirit of health and solidarity to raise awareness of this crisis and support YWCA’s Racial Justice programs. Together, we can promote health and wellness for all.
