100 Black Men, Crouse Hospital Host Community Health Walk on June 8
100 Black Men of Syracuse, Inc., in partnership with Crouse Hospital, is sponsoring the fifth annual Winston Gaskin Community Walk for Wellness & Stroke Awareness on Saturday, June 8, at Thornden Park on Syracuse’s University Hill. Registrations, including a $10 registration fee, will be accepted from 8:30 to 9 a.m. the day of the walk and in advance online. Participants will walk a designated one-mile, two-mile or three-mile course inside the park.
The event, which concludes at 11 a.m., honors Winston Gaskin, an African-American Syracuse resident, pharmacist, Army veteran and community leader who passed away in 2009. The Gaskin Walk is also dedicated to raising awareness about the signs and symptoms of stroke.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the 100 Black Men of Syracuse health and wellness initiatives, as well as the Syracuse Juneteenth Festival. Donations are always welcomed if you are unable to participate in the walk.
