Quotes from the news wire:
It wasn't because we were walking enthusiasts or because we love to walk. When we started we were just trying to save our own lives, how do we not fall in these pitfalls that our mothers and our aunts and our grandmothers have fallen into ? Eighty percent of us are overweight and carrying that weight is killing us now at disproportionate levels. We can't do it anymore. We can't carry it anymore.
Women are connecting with their neighbors, their friends, the women at their church, the women on campuses, and when you walk you talk, and so it becomes a support community where women who are alone or women who are suffering any kind of depression or anxiety or stress can walk, talk and slow down with friends. And that act of slowing down is radical.
As you start walking, you start noticing' oh we need a garden here' or' this crosswalk is dangerous for our kids', and so, we are here to help women, to advocate for policy, to build infrastructure, to change their neighborhoods.
It feels great to have something practical I can do when I feel overwhelmed by the news. it feels great to have black women that I work with every single day to be my tribe. It feels amazing to go to a GirlTrek event and have women welcome me with open arms. So, I don't feel like I'm saving lives. I feel like they're saving my life.
