Afro Chick Run

  • TC Jester Park 4201 West T C Jester Boulevard Houston, TX, 77018 United States (map)

September 15th is World Afro Day, a global day of change, education and celebration of Afro hair, culture and identity. Since Afro-hair is rarely celebrated, the Afro Chicks Run will help change this narrative and 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 and everyone is welcomed!
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 naturally afro-textured hair.
