Rhonda Walker Foundation celebrates the 13th annual Give and Get Fit Health and Fitness events on Sunday, July 30, 2023, at 5K/10K Run/Walk & Health Fair!
Give and Get Fit will bring together over 400 health-conscious Metro Detroiters and friends from around the country, of all ages for a fun-filled weekend of health, fitness, and a 5K/10K run/walk along the beautiful Detroit Riverwalk or at a (virtual) route of your choice! All registered 5K/10K participants will receive a performance shirt, medal, and special discounts from our partners! Shirts are only guaranteed for 5K/10K pre-registered attendees.
