New York, New York, big city of dreams! And Sistas Running New York is exactly what it seems!
Ashley and I are always super pumped to find other BG's who share our love for running. New York is one of our favorite cities so when we found out about Sistas Run NYC, we were equally as geeked.
Sistas Run NYC was created to bring black women across the country together to run in the ING New York Marathon. Why? To raise awareness, increase education and make a bold statement about the importance of exercise, diet and leading a healthy lifestyle in the African-American community. Sistas Run NYC is also raising money for an organization that addresses the health concerns of African-American women and children. And BGR! is behind them 100 percent.
Black Girls RUN! will represent in November at the ING New York Marathon. We'll also be raising money for the Black Girls RUN! Foundation to go towards Sistas Run NYC.
If you're interested in running with us in NYC, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration ends soon, so don't wait.
