Juneteenth Celebration Virtual 5K

June 19, 2021 - August 17, 2021

On Saturday, June 19th, 2021, join the We Are Run Series and Fit, Black, and Educated, Inc. for our annual Juneteenth Celebration Virtual 5k run/walk/bike. This event commemorates June 19th, 1865, the date when the last remaining Black American slaves in the Confederacy were emancipated, effectively marking the end of chattel slavery in the United States. Join us from wherever you are to celebrate a new beginning and reflect on this historic day.

The We Are Run Series presents the inaugural BLK LUV 5K. This 5k celebrates our love for all the contributions that Black people have made to the world. From science to entertainment to culture. Show your love by supporting all things Black.

So go ahead and run/walk/treadmill in your favorite HBCU hoodie, proudly display your crown, wear Pan-African colors, etc.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in celebrating Black American history IS American history!
