READY AND SET.
This fall, the 100 Black Men of Madison invite you to stay active and motivated in your health journey with our inaugural walk/run fundraiser, which you can complete safely at your pace. Proceeds raised from this on-going virtual event will go towards Project 3000, an initiative created to help low-income families impacted by COVID-19.
In collaboration with our strategic partners, the 100 Black Men of Madison will labor to assure that a defined three thousand (3,000) limited income families receive comprehensive support including, but not limited to; Food Security, Virtual Learning Support, Connectivity, Mentoring, Factual Communication and Advocacy.
