Wellness Wednesday 08/12/2020
Let's exercise and participate in the My54 Mile walking, running, or riding nation-wide 30-day challenge!
Pray with your Feet!
Congressman John Lewis and Rev. C.T. Vivian helped organize the world-changing Selma-to-Montgomery march to fight for voting rights of Blacks in Alabama, the South, and around the country, eventually spurring the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. That was so important to them that they convinced thousands to walk 54 miles through rural Alabama, in the teeth of those who had already proven that they would do them harm. Your 54 may also be voting rights, but it may be something completely different as well - perhaps it’s hunger, or police brutality, or antisemitism. Visit www.My54.org.
You can use your Fitbit, phone, or any tracking device to track your miles. Walk early in the morning or evening. Attached please find a calendar to record your miles from July 30, - August 28th, the Anniversary of the March on Washington. There's lots of information and activities on My54.org.
