No matter the health problem – from heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, Covid-19 or even pregnancy-related complications – Black women are disproportionately impacted.

That knowledge inspired the idea to bring women together to learn more about fitness. And that has blossomed into Black Women Get Fit, a popular fitness event in Kansas City that dates back to 2018

Now, Black Women Get Fit is bringing its “Ultimate Day Party” to Wichita for a health and wellness event that focuses on the unique needs and experiences of Black women.  

This event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required online (see link at the bottom of this story)

Thanks to support from the Kansas Black Leadership Council, the Kansas African American Affairs Commission, The Community Voice, and funding support from the Kansas Reach Grant, the half-day event will be held in Wichita on Sat., Aug. 19.
