BRIDGES Walk for a Just Community - Oct 27th!

From Just Community:

BRIDGES Walk for a Just Community

The BRIDGES Walk for a Just Community is an inspiring event promoting inclusion, equity and justice for all.  This celebration is truly a display of the rich ethnic and cultural compilation of our region.  All proceeds for the walk benefit the programs of BRIDGES for a Just Community.

BRIDGES for a Just Community has been our region's leading human relations organization since 1944.  It brings people together to achieve inclusion, equity and justice for all.  BRIDGES provides programming designed to meet community challenges related to diversity, inclusion and social justice.
The walk is a 5K (3.1 mile) event.  Families and those with special needs can participate.  There will also be a certified 5K Freedom Run ($25 registration fee). 

After the walk there will be entertainment including dancing and choirs.  There will also be food, drink and the opportunity to learn more about organizations in the area doing diversity and inclusion work.  Groups represent our area's rich multi-ethnic composition.
Check the BRIDGES walk website for more information.
