GospelFit proudly presents the launch of Run, Walk, Praise for Healthy Living Saturday, July 1, 2017, on Randall’s Island in Manhattan beginning at 9 a.m. Run, Walk, Praise is designed to be an experience to bring the community together and create a fun and healthy environment.

“It will be so much fun, people will remember it as one of the best day parties they’ve attended,” said Joy Williams, founder of GospelFit and creator of Run, Walk, Praise. “We are on a mission to make our communities more healthy with running, walking, dance and music in an environment that educates and inspires. GospelFit created Run, Walk, Praise as a way to engage the community in activities that promote health and wellness without preaching.”

In addition to individuals or teams registering to participate in Run, Walk, Praise, there will be distribution of health and wellness information, vendors and, of course, music. The Run and Walk portion will cover 3.1 miles/5K and begin at 9 a.m., with on-site registration starting at 7:30 a.m.

Sponsors of the event include Harlem Hospital, Black Health Matters, Airbnb, Project HEED and WE Act for Environmental Justice.
