Jacksonville’s BLM 5K kicks off tomorrow

JACKSONVILLE, FL — Runners are getting ready for this year’s BLM 5K. The walk/run honoring the Black community starts tomorrow at 5 p.m. at Riverfront Plaza in Downtown Jacksonville.

It’s a two-part event this year, the race plus a gala at The Grand Rose Ballroom.

There’s an in-person and virtual option to participate. And it’s not too late to register.

Expect a long list of live speakers and entertainers.

BLM 5K helps families suffering from poverty, discrimination, sexual assault and harassment, and other injustices.
