Make a Big Impact with Black Girls RUN! & #OptOutside

We are just a little over 1 week away from Thanksgiving – a special time in the year where we gather with family and spend quality time. This time of year has also become a special time for our signature event, #OptOutside! BGR! Nation has partnered with our friends at REI to bring awareness to making big changes in the world through our small changes. We invite you to join us on Friday, November 29th for #OptOutside. We have cleanups and runs happening all over the country!

BGR! Chicago #OptOutside Feature: Meet Mary Castle-Enyard aka “Dancin’ Mary”

Dancin’ Mary has been a member of Black Girls Run! for 5 yrs. She is an outstanding Run Coordinators from Chicago.  She doesn’t just run, she also swims, bikes & dances hence the name “Dancin Mary”. During her group weekly runs she makes sure that all the ladies are safe, the area is well lit and free of debris. If not, she’s on the phone reporting the issues so the next time her group hits the pavement that it’s clean & safe. Dancin’ Mary is active in her community and encourages us all to be active in ours. Join Mary in Chicago on November 29th!
