Black Girls Run Omaha Chapter
Black Girls RUN! wants to encourage African-American women to make fitness and healthy living a priority. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 80% of African-American women are overweight. BGR! wants to create a movement to lower that percentage and subsequently, lower the number of women with chronic diseases associated with an unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle. .
The 21Ninety woman is an independent spirit, a rebel and a proud member of the all-natural movement. It takes 21 days to form a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle. 21Ninety is the one place where women of color can come together to learn about new things in beauty, wellness and health.
This particular Book Club! was born out of the IBBG private Facebook group by a few women who wanted to connect.
