The Black Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County will be hosting our first annual MLK 5K: Race Against Racism on Saturday, January 15, 2022, just prior to the MLK Day Parade in Riviera Beach. This will be a grand event bringing together a diverse group of health-minded individuals and organizations as we address socioeconomic and health disparities.
The MLK 5K will incorporate several events including a 1/2-mile Kids Fun Run, an untimed 1-mile Fitness Walk/Run, and timed 5K and 10K Challenge Walk/Runs. There will also be a Health & Fitness Village where visitors can receive health screenings, massages and information from our partners and vendors.
In order to make this day a success we are hiring a professional race organizer and will be recruiting dozens of volunteers for the day of the event. We are also partnering with the Riviera Beach Police and Parks & Recreation departments.
If you would be interested in assisting with serving on the MLK 5K Coordinating Committee register to attend our next Committee Meeting. Committee member time commitments and how serving on this committee could benefit you and your business.
