The African American Male Wellness Walk/Run was a success because of its residents. We are grateful for the support that the Vindicator has provided for this event! As one of the honorary co-chairman, Ernie Brown devoted his column to highlight this efforts. the awesome articles written by Bill Alcorn and Sean Barron explaining why this effort impacts the WHOLE community was powerful.
As the pictures, videos and social media posting reflect, this was by no means a segregated event! Males AND females of every age, race and creed either participated and/or volunteered in this community experience!
The Mahoning Valley displayed unity and commitment to promote values that positively impact our area. Say what you will, but I am of the opinion the Mahoning Valley rocks!!
Ultimately, this community has become healthier and more aware of resources within its own reach!1
