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.
