    I have a video from the line dance but I don't know how to upload it to Facebook. It only gives me the option to upload to YouTube. Any assistance would be appreciate! Thanks ☺

    Nothing like walking for a great cause in good company! Line dancing was a nice touch too. :)

    Another successful and worthy event to bring the Mahogany Philly Ladies together. We do what we can when we can and no matter how big or small the group, coming together to give back will always be special.

    Greetings Ladies! Just checking in before the big day--THIS SATURDAY!!!

    As noted already, Jamaica will be participating for all those who'll be running this weekend. All runners need to meet at the main entrance of the art museum with their money if they haven't already registered ($30). I (Tracie) WILL MEET ALL WALKERS AT THE MAIN ENTRANCE OF THE ART MUSEUM AT 9:00AM. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS EARLIER THAN THE 9:15AM TIME NOTED, which will allow us time to stretch, find each other, deal with parking, etc. I'll be the tall thick chick w/ the scruffy long locs (Lawd KNOWS I need a touch-up!), black yoga pants, purple workout jacket, & bright pink Mahogany Philly pin.

    One final note: walkers are not required to give money to this; however, as this is a fundraiser, please consider giving a donation to our fundraising page: http://action.hungercoalition.org/page/outreach/dashboard/walk2013_freshstart/MahoganyPhilly

    $25.00 is requested, but give what you can! Thanks y'all!

      Just looking for clarification. I'm walking, so are we meeting at LITERALLY the front door of the Art Museum, or at the water feature/fountain? There's just a lot of room for interpretation...maybe I should make a sign...lol

    Hi Tracie, A co-worker will be joining our team for the walk. He too has made the $25 donation. I can't wait to see every one and have a great day! :)

    Hello, All! Thank you so much for your willingness to participate in this event; looking for it to be a great time!

    If you haven't had a chance to stop by our group fundraising page, please take a minute to do so now:

    https://secure.hungercoalition.org/page/outreach/view/walk2013_freshstart/MahoganyPhilly

    As you will see, I did set a fundraising goal of $1500 for us, which I believe is ABSOLUTELY attainable between our own donations and those we solicit from our friends and loved ones. We have just over a month to make it happen, ladies...can we do it?!

    Nah...the real question is: Do we WANT to do it. Let's say YES!!!

    Thank you for your patience as I've navigated leading this project and running my own life; I will be in touch again soon as we get closer to the date, so stay tuned!

    Peace and Blessings,

    Tracie G., the Brown Skin Lady :o)

    Hi Jamaica, I have been super busy lately and have not attended any events in a while. :( I will be joining you for this 5K Run/Walk Against Hunger in April, and wanted to ask if you were bringing any extra Buttons? If so, please put me down for two! Could you resend me the info on them please? Thanks! Bernie

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
