On Sunday, June 21, 2020, we would like to see everyone run or walk 4.6 virtual miles to celebrate Mr. George Floyd.
On May 25, Minneapolis police officers arrested George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, after a convenience store employee called 911. Mr. Floyd, allegedly, purchased cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill. Seventeen minutes after the first squad car arrived at the scene, Mr. Floyd was unconscious and pinned beneath three police officers, showing no signs of life.
Mr. Floyd had 5 kids that will celebrate Father’s Day without their dad.
As we run and show grit, please keep yourself motivated on the positive changes that we can make, as a community. So that no other death is in vain.
Remember, BLACK LIVES MATTER!
