What's Up This Weekend!?
What’s up party people!? So far this summer has been absolutely EPIC. I’ve been having a blast checking out all these events, and this weekend is looking like it’ll be another one for the books.
Whether you’re looking to give back, get fit, find balance, or be a social butterfly, we have something for everyone! ❤️

Grand African Run is an annual mass participation fun run/walk that takes place in Washington DC. Participants will have an opportunity to line up with world famous athletes of African origin as well as high profile personalities (musicians, politicians, actors, speakers, religious leaders, etc.) to take part in the 5K long sporting festival.
Every year, one African based charity that focuses on children’s education will receive the proceeds from the run. Each year, different charities from different African countries will be selected.
