Registrants will receive blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and body mass screenings at no charge during the event as well as obtain other information and resources about health conditions.
College Fair – HBCU Alumni chapters will also conduct a College Fair after the race to provide information to high school students about each of the respective colleges and universities they proudly represent. Students will have the opportunity to receive applications and scholarship information as well as ask questions to assist in making college selection decisions. Also, staff from the Department of Education will be on hand to assist parents and students with financial information.
