Black Girls RUN! is a grassroots organization that has turned into a movement because women across the country want to activate change in their community. Black Girls RUN! Ambassadors serve as the heart and soul of the organization and we’re always looking for women who love to run, want to impact lives in their local community and have a passion for helping others. From organizing and leading group runs, to hosting special workshops for members, Ambassadors volunteer their time to encourage women to live an active and healthy lifestyle, all while having fun!
