Walking as a Revolutionary Act of Self-Care
T. Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison personify passion! They are passionate about the preventable loss of black women who are "dying faster and at higher rates than any other group of people in America from preventable, obesity related diseases".
To combat this epidemic, Dixon and Garrison founded the non-profit Girl Trek. "They're on a mission to reduce the leading causes of preventable death among black women — and build communities in the process. How? By getting one million black women and girls to prioritize their self-care, lacing up their shoes and walking in the direction of their healthiest, most fulfilled lives."
