Health Freedom Walk - June 10, 2017

Begin your journey to wellness! Join the African American Health Program (AAHP) for the Health Freedom Celebration Walk!


This 3.75-mile adventure promotes increased physical activity while making creative use of Maryland’s integral role in the Underground Railroad. Participants walk a path similar to the historical route traveled by slaves in their quest for freedom, and, in turn, become motivated to achieve their own freedom from the bondage of poor health.


Registration includes admission to the new Woodlawn Museum in the historic stone barn.  Interactive exhibits highlight the Underground Railroad and the Quaker experience in Montgomery County revealed through the lives of Woodlawn’s residents and the local free black communities. The Health Freedom Celebration Walk will also feature musical entertainment, free health information, and fun for the entire family. 


Bring your family and friends on Saturday, June 10 at Woodlawn Manor Cultural Park! Warm-up and welcome begin at 8 am; the walk begins at 9.
