According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, four out of five African American women - the leading casualties of such ills as obesity, heart disease and diabetes - are overweight. In response to this health crisis, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is holding this year-long fitness and health drive to help ALL women, regardless of age or race, adopt healthy lifestyles for the long haul. Whether you want to lose weight, get fit, compete, or just stay in shape, come dressed to sweat (with an exercise mat or beach towel), bring a buddy or 3 and join this safe, fun fitness program endorsed by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports!
