  • Instructor Black Girls Run!

This year when we #OptOutside, we Opt to Act. Throughout the year, we're hosting events with different organization to clean parks, beaches and riverbanks nationwide. Let's leave the world better than we found it.


    Join Black Girls RUN! Nation as we kickoff #OptOutside with REI on Friday, November 29th. Opt to run outside and stay away from the shopping hustle and bustle and join our community on the pavement. Please bring used running shoes to donate to Thrive. They have a program called "walk a mile in their shoes" in Newport News. They collect donated shoes in order to support the development of micro-enterprises in third world nations (primarily Haiti).
