The Fun Run's Chair, Michael Branch, had this to say: "We at Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. are seeking to uplift the West Louisville community by targeting one of the most crucial stepping stones to well-being and empowerment, which is health and fitness. Many of us are from the area and we saw the need for a healthy lifestyle push in an area like West Louisville which is full of food deserts and conspicuously devoid of fitness amenities like health clubs and gyms. Running/walking is a fundamental human movement, and also one of the most basic exercises available. One that doesn't take any extra equipment to begin participating in".
This year's event will primarily benefit an Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Local and National Partner, The March of Dimes, as well as the Alpha Lambda Education Foundation. The March of Dimes goal is to improve the health of babies and give every baby a fighting chance while the Education Foundation is a 501 c 3 non-profit organized for charitable and educational purposes.
