Black Girls RUN! is taking it to the pavement as we usually do this year on Friday, November 29th. In some worlds, this day - the day after Thanksgiving is a day we raid the mall and stores to start our Christmas shopping, BUT this year (and for the last five years), we are ditching the stores and heading outside! #sponsored
The #OptOutside campaign is the perfect campaign as it embodies all that Black Girls RUN! stands for - community, health and fitness! We join in with REI on this campaign because of our members! Our members inspire us to opt to act - whether its going for a run, giving an encouraging word to a member, picking up trash along our route or choosing to enjoy the outdoors after Thanksgiving dinner!
Each day we have the opportunity to change the world by taking small steps (no pun intended!) in the community, neighborhood or block that we live! So, what can you do this season to change your community? Organize a neighborhood run/walk, yard sale, trash pick up day, or say a kind word to a neighbor!
Let us know what you plan to do to Opt to Act and #OptOutside! We have groups across the country organizing run, trash pick up events, running shoe donations and much more! Check back often to see more locations added.
