The Beauty-n-Motion 5k Walk Run 4 Life Health, Beauty and Wellness Expo has picked up momentum as Los Angeles prepares for a day of education, speakers, demonstrations, vendors and of course the 5k fun walk or run.  With the emphasis on the health issues of African American women and their families, it is no wonder celebrities and officials have joined the movement as Health Ambassadors.

The Beauty-n-Motion National Chair is Barbara A. Perkins, President of Sisters at the Well & Co-Founder of the International Black Women’s Public Policy Institute (IBWPPI). The Los Angeles Chair is Councilmember Curren D. Price, Jr., 9th District.  The Co-Chair is Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, 8th District.   In addition, Senator Holly Mitchell and Actress, Activist Sheryl Lee Ralph of The D.I.V.A .Foundation are official Health Ambassadors.

“Women are the health CEO of the family,” said Margo LaDrew, executive director of the Black BeautyShop Health Foundation. “Given that black women visit the salon an average of 2.5 times a month, the beauty shop is an ideal place to educate women and equip them with practical tools for improving their family’s health.”

Beauty-n-Motion 5k Walk Run is produced by Black BeautyShop Health Foundation, a National grassroots organization that seeks to train and provide ongoing support to participating salons, their clients and surrounding neighborhoods.  The goal is to bridge the gap in health disparities within communities across the country.

The mission is to work with community stakeholders to empower Women of Color to take an active role in their total health by understanding and being responsive to their immediate health care needs through education, screenings and promoting healthy living strategies in Black owned beauty shops.
