Afro Chicks Run
A Celebration of World Afro Day
Did you know Sept 15th is
World Afro Day!
World Afro Day is a global day of change, education and celebration of Afro hair, culture and identity. Everyone is welcome on this journey. Afro-hair is rarely celebrated, especially globally and this year Afro Chicks Run seeks to help change this narrative and to create a platform to celebrate and educate people about Afro hair.
In Celebration World Afro Day, IAmQueen and MAD Movement created the Afro Chick Run/Walk 5k. We are bringing some real Afro Curly girl magic!
This is not your average 5k, there will be a 1-mile fun run for the kids, Dance Cardio Fun with Crystal Wall and her BAMF's of Mixfits Studios, Healthy Organic food options from Julia Cooks Organic Food Truck, and a host of vendor and activities focused on heath, wellness and beauty. Join us for this exciting celebration and block party on September 15th from 8am to 1pm at TC Jester Park 4201 T C Jester Boulevard Houston, TX. Come let your afro shine on a day dedicated to embracing our naturally afro textured hair.
Portions of this event will be donated to The Rose, which helps to bring awareness to breast cancer in the communities by helping to provide free mammograms and treatment for uninsured women.
