SPECIAL GUEST: Penny Marshall, chairperson for the Harriet Tubman Journey.

The Harriet Tubman Journey Committee is presenting the Inaugural Delaware Harriet Tubman Commemorative two mile walk, ride, run and race event for the family on Sunday, March 10, 2013 (Harriet Tubman Day), to recognize the 100th Anniversary of  Conductor Araminta “Harriet” Tubman's death. Often called Moses, Tubman is known for her daring resistance against the institution of slavery.  Her life story is amongst the uppermost profiles of courage and bravery in American history.

The Inaugural events are part of the “Ten for the Tenth” days of activities from March 1 to March 10 to honor Ms. Tubman’s contributions and legacy. 

The events include a two mile walk/run in northern Delaware at Dravo Plaza on the Wilmington Riverfront, a motorcycle caravan riding from the PA border to the Riverfront and a14 mile relay from Sandtown at the Maryland/DE border to Camden, Delaware. The latter two events track the Delaware Harriet Tubman Byway. 

The Harriet Tubman Journey is a volunteer organization whose members have come together to honor the legacy of Harriet Tubman.
