250 runners turn out for the 6th Annual Umoja 5K Run/Walk

The 6th annual Umoja 5K (8/29) was a great success. More than 250 people turned out to participate in this year's event. Teams representing Holy Savior, Via Christi, the Links, Tabernacle Bible Church, and many others also came out to run/walk together.

This year, several of the sponsoring organizations (including the Wichita NAACP) donated funds to sponsor Youth participation in the event with the goal of addressing the issue of childhood obesity. Approximately 50 youth participated in the timed event.

This year, in partnership with the American Heart Association, we also distributed information on the "Power to End Stroke" campaign, with healthy cookbooks  and tons of information on how people could reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease. More than 80 signed pledge cards were collected at the event.

Special thanks goes out Brenda Davis and Maryon Habtemarian who came together once again and put on a first class event for the community...
