About the event

Join us for a special rise and run in Fells Point as we celebrate the birthday of Nelson Mandela. This special day marks the global observance of Nelson Mandela International Day, encouraging everyone to reflect on Mandela's enduring values of resilience, peace, and social justice, and to identify ways we can embody these principles in our own lives. The Nelson Mandela Foundation is hosting a run on Saturday, July 20 in South Africa, and Marylanders can use this rise and run to show support as allies. Breakfast and beverages will be provided to runners by the Sister States of Maryland. Additionally, we encourage runners to visit the "Marylanders Cry Freedom" exhibit at Baltimore City Hall, which highlights the significant roles Marylanders have played in the global fight for civil rights. If you can't make it out, consider dedicating your run to Nelson Mandela and sharing your experience on social media with us. Inspire action, promote understanding, and create positive change in Baltimore and across Maryland by participating this day! #MandelaDayMaryland #ITISINYOURHANDS #BmoreMandela
