On Sunday, July 30, 2017, the bright blue hue of the Detroit Riverfront will be speckled with green. Over 500 health-conscious metro-Detroiters are expected to slip into their green t-shirts and participate in Give and Get Fit: a fun-filled morning of health and fitness hosted by the Rhonda Walker Foundation and sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
The seventh annual event will begin promptly at 8 a.m. at Rivard Plaza. Activities include health, nutrition and wellness exhibits, 5K/10K run/walk along the Detroit River and Dequindre Cut, plus exhilarating yoga, Pilates and boxing classes along the riverfront.
Participants will also have the chance to meet this year’s Celebrity Grand Marshal Shaun Robinson. Robinson is a TV personality, author, producer, Emmy award-winning journalist and Founder of the S.H.A.U.N. Foundation for Girls.
Registration is $40 per participant, which includes a performance shirt, medal and goodie bag. Proceeds from the event benefit Rhonda Walker Foundation’s health and wellness youth programming through its five-year Girls into Women career, personal development, education and mentoring program for inner city teen girls.
The foundation encourages all participants to become a Camp I Can Champion by fundraising $250—the amount needed to send one teen to Camp I Can. This camp is a weekend leadership and self development retreat that focuses on team building, self-esteem, confidence building and overcoming barriers through fun-filled activities.
