Don’t miss the 2nd Annual Soul Stroll for Health Madison. With an anticipated temperature around 65 degrees, participants will enjoy a 1-mile, 3-mile or 5-mile walk along the beautiful John Nolen Bike Path. This is an excellent way to get your required 30 minutes of daily physical activity. Besides 1-, 3-, and 5-mile courses, the Soul Stroll includes a Health and Screening Resource Fair to promote healthy lifestyles by providing information that’s actively advancing African American men’s health prostate cancer and other ailments compared to other racial and ethnic groups.
Since 2007, the Rebalanced-life Wellness Association has been working with businesses, corporations, community-based organizations, health educators and the faith community to create an awareness of the major health concerns affecting African-Americans and to actively promote a more healthier lifestyle.
This year’s theme is “Let’s Unite & Get Well Together,” and as chair of the Dane County African American Men’s Health Advisory Committee, Aaron Perry invites you to dust off those walking shoes and come enjoy health screenings, Zumba in the park, and line dancing for all ages and abilities. This event promises to jump start your physical activity.
This event is supported by community partners including Meriter Health Services & Physicians Plus Insurance and UW Health & Unity Health Insurance.
Cost of the event is $5. Free for children under 5.
