About The Movement
African-American women die at higher rates than any other group of women in America. In fact, African-American women are more likely to die from preventable, obesity-related diseases such as breast cancer, diabetes, and heart disease than all other women in the United States. Despite these facts, African-American women can take charge of their own health and walk their way to healthier, longer, and fuller lives!
Each time a GirlTrek woman earns her Golden Shoelaces she crosses an important threshold for:
Making Walking A Daily Habit
Preventing Breast Cancer, Obesity, or Diabetes
Adding up to 5.5 years to her life!
