I want more African American families out of the gym; off the couch and into the Great Outdoors to try activities incorrectly perceived to be “something other people do”, such as bicycling, skiing, camping, and hiking. I am a 30-something African American mom who has enjoyed a lifetime of outdoor sports and fun all over California, but most times I venture out, I see very few people who look like me. So come out and join me and my family to discuss fitness, lasting memories, and inspiration through nature!
