Local Sorority To Host 5k Walk

Posted: Updated:
    A local sorority will host its first 5k walk/run on Saturday, September 28.
    The Rho Lambda Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is hosting the event at JSU's Walter Payton Center at 8 am.  The fee is $10, and the 5K route will travel the JSU parkway.
    The theme of the event is "The Sole Stroll: Steps Toward Obesity Prevention."  This is the first 5k Race hosted solely by a Black Greek Letter Organization in the City of Jackson.
    At least 35 percent of adults in Mississippi are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

    This event is open to the public. For more information, email alphakappaalpha5k@gmail.com.
