Wellness Walk & Run 2023

Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness Month? Collective Initiatives Inc believes that mental health is an essential element to the advancement of Black and Latinx people and communities. It affects how we think, feel, and act. But it doesn't stop there, physical health and social engagement are also key components!

With that in mind (pun intended), we invite you to support Collective Intiaitives Inc’s  2nd annual Wellness Walk & Run on Sunday, May 21, 2023, 8 AM - 11 AM CST.  We're gathering in the Dan Ryan Woods - North Picnic Grove 15 at 8300 S. Western Ave. Chicago, IL 60620 to walk, run, and socialize together. 

But wait, there’s more! This event not only benefits Collective Initiatives Inc. but 2 other nonprofit organizations! We’ve partnered with Lord and Angell House and Rooting on Me Inc, to further our shared vision of healthy prosperous Black and Brown people and communities. 

I'm interested. What are the details?
