Description

Please join us for the 3rd annual Jackson African American Male Wellness Walk

Established in 2004 and having a presence in more than 16 cities, the National African American Male Wellness Walk (NAAMWW) provides a 5k walk and run as an awareness campaign addressing the need for black men to live longer from preventable diseases.

The heartbeat of each walk initiative are the health screenings where we screen for blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, HIV, STD/STI and prostate cancer for men who may not be seeing the doctor regularly. We help men understand that through prevention they can live longer. Our mantra is for them to know their numbers, get moving and visit the doctor annually.

The NAAMWW is attended by over 100,000 people annually made up of men, women and children.

All are able to participate in the walk and health screenings for free.

The 5k will start and finish in front of the Russell C Davis Planetarium at 201 E. Pascagoula St. Parking is available in the lots in front of the Convention Center and near the Planetarium.

Hope to see you there!
