Latinas In Motion is a non-profit organization organized to encourage, inspire, and empower ALL women to run! According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “Latinas have high rates of factors that increase the risk of developing heart disease, such as diabetes, obesity, and physical inactivity. Heart disease accounts for a third of all deaths among Latinas ” (2010). Latinas in Motion provides an atmosphere that contradicts these statistics and fosters a community of women living healthy lifestyles. We pride ourselves in exercise, good nutrition and taking care of self.
WE MEET 1x/week at Clark's Creek Greenway (University City/Mallard Creek) in Charlotte, NC!
