BGR! Chicago Ambassador, Kelli Rockwell, represented BGR! Nation in a panel hosted by the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on diversity in running! Kelli will be running the CM in 3 weeks!

It was a great night promoting diversity in the running community. Kelly was also on the panel with Diego Estrada, Olympian and the first American finisher of the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon, Carlos Jaramillo, race director for Carrera de los Muertos, and Carey Pinkowski, executive race director of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

Thank you for the opportunity and space to have these very important discussions!

BGR! Boston ran the road to wellness 5k! This is their big event with the BAA( Boston Athletic Association) and the Dimock Health Center. The beauty of the race is that it's in Roxbury. Home of Malcolm X and New Edition. To run a USATF certified 5k in the heart of the African American community in Boston is beyond wonderful.

Way to go ladies!

From Sara, BGR! Cleveland -

Dear BGR, 
Where do I begin? I can share how you have impacted my life in ways that has transcended future generations. Yesterday, I began guiding my children as they told me they wanted to "run with mommy". We ran in the drizzling rain with the dog and achieved an intentional "family mile". They loved every minute:) I was proud that I was able to run longer than 30 seconds with them and share advice that was relevant and true to quality running practice. 
Maybe I can share how BGR has impacted the way I look at life like having a more positive outlook with endless possibilities. The WB4UR program impacted my life in ways that would most likely turn into a dissertation so I won't go there, but I will say thank you BGR for birthing the most amazing ambassadors, new found friends and enhancing my life in ways that I will continue to pay forward as God blesses me to do so. If you want to learn how to run, you can run. I am a witness. 🙂 #bgr #blackgirlsrun #preservethesexy
Hey BGR! Hampton Roads! Way to represent at the 5 Cities Midnight Run! You look great! #blackgirlsrun #preservethesexy ❤️
