Pink Goes Red Walking Challenge

During the week leading up to our Pink Goes Red Community Impact Day, Rho Gamma Omega invited chapter members and the community to get moving and get #8K2Excellence by completing 8,000 steps per day and telling us about it. Participants used a variety of methods to reach their goals, such as walking, jogging and kickboxing. Our chapter is committed to bringing awareness to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and regular exercise; only 36% of African-American women know that heart disease is their greatest health risk. Keep moving! #AKARGO #womenshearthealth #pinkgoesred #AKANAR #AK1908
