Black Men Run is a national organization with an active chapter in Columbus. The organization encourages African American males to get out in front of their health because as their website notes, the numbers don’t lie.
- Among Blacks age 20 and older, 44.4% of men have Cardiovascular Diseases
- In 2009, Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) caused the deaths of 21,051
- Black males have a risk of first-ever stroke that is almost twice that of whites
- Heart disease is the #1 cause of death for African American males
The Columbus chapter is active and growing and would love to connect with you. Find out more about group runs by joining the Columbus Black Men Run Facebook group, and follow @blackmenruncolumbus on Instagram.
