5K Opens Tampa Music Fest

Tampa Black Heritage Festival | Martin Luther King | Music Fest

The 5K and music fest are part of the Tampa Bay Black Heritage Festival celebrating Martin Luther King.

TAMPA – The 5K Walk/Run for Health kicks off the morning of the first day of the two-day Music Fest and is held in honor of Felecia Ann Wintons-Taylor. She was one of the founding members of the 10-day Tampa Bay Black Heritage Festival and lost her battle with breast cancer in 2009. The Walk/Run is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Saturday (Jan. 16) in Curtis Hixon Park, 600 N Ashley Drive, Tampa.

The purpose of the walk is to emphasize healthy living while educating the community about health disparities among African-Americans. The walk is FREE and open to the public. Throughout the years the walk has been a positive and motivating addition to the festival and the community. Individuals, families, friends, companies, and pets can join hundreds of others as we honor survivors and pay respects to those who have succumbed to diseases that affect the black and brown community.

Please bring a towel or yoga mat, for the Soul Yoga Cool Down, after the walk/run.
