The Walking Club - 8KStepsDC is back for another summer of walking!!
Join us for a virtual warm up Kickoff Saturday, May 21st. The club will walk every Saturday from May 21st through September 3rd at 7:30 am. After the virtual warm up as a group, walkers will then walk on their own and record their steps. While most of the dates will be virtual, select dates will be in person.
This year we are celebrating Harriet Tubman’s 200th Birthday and honoring her legacy. In celebration of Harriet Tubman’s 200th Anniversary, the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Rho Mu Omega Chapter, is challenging walkers to join them in walking an additional 3880 steps each day. This will represent approximately 13 times that Harriet walked 90 miles for herself and others to freedom. Register online to join us in our quest to log the 8,000 steps per day or in honor of Harriet Tubman’s 200th anniversary, 11,880 steps per day.
In addition to walking the extra steps for Harriet Tubman, we will be providing information soon on how you can join us in fighting against human trafficking, which is our modern day slavery system.
