Episode 26: No Woman Left Behind (with Jay Ell Alexander)
Play • 31 min
For this week's conversation I am joined by the CEO of Black Girls RUN!, Jay Ell Alexander.  Black Girls RUN! began as a blog in 2009 where the co-founders journaled about their running experiences. As the popularity of the blog increased and an initial call out brought out a few hundred women, BGR moved from being a blog to  becoming a community. BGR is now a 250, 000 -strong organization that tackles the growing obesity epidemic in the African-American community and encourages, motivates and provide resources to help black women practice a healthy lifestyle. Jay Ell shares with listeners the impact that BGR has had on her career and life, and the passion that she has for getting more Black women healthier and on the pavement.
