We all know that walking is good for us. Ofcourse
walking is better than sitting and standing or leaning because
it’s giving the body a workout. If you walk a mile you burn
calories. Walking to the store that’s down the street
or not very far is better on your health than driving. It saves
gas and burns calories.
June 28, 50 thousand members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority
will do the ESP 1908 Global Centennial Walk to show their
spirit about fitness. They are spreading the message about
emotional, spiritual, and physical health.
President Barbara A. MCkinzie will be joined with
50 thousand members from 1,000 chapters along with
friends and family. Those involved are people from canada,
Germany, The virgin Islands and the Bahama. The walk
is organized by AKA’s International Program Committee
Loann Honesty King.
The Sorority will do a walk of 1908 steps and that’s
about 2 miles. Participants will walk toward Washington DC
where Alpha Kappa Alpha’s Centennial convention
occurs, July 11-18.
Then they will meet again at the Sorority’s biennial convention
Sunday July 13, in Washington.
At the walk will be Dr. Ian Smith a Black man whose a
medical and diet expert on VH1’s Celebrity fit club. He has
a show called HealthWatch on American urban radio
networks. He is as well the creator and founder of 50 Million pound
So this walk aims to get you fit mentally and physically. It
balances emotional intelligence, optimal psychology, and spirituality.
When all of this is together, physical health, relationships, and life
satisfaction will show.
Here’s some information on Alpha Kappa Alpha:

women. It is headquarters is in Chicago Illinois and its a leading
service organization. There are over 200,000 women in over 975

So see, that’s what kinda stuff they are doing.
They are looking out for us. Some people don’t even
think about excercize or eating healthy but AKA’s are
promoting what we should think about.
Even if we are thinking about it this
will encourage us EVEN more.
