Episode details

Hello Everybody!


⁣I promised Ahmaud’s dear mother, Wanda, that we could get 5,000 people to register for the 1st Annual Walk/Run with Maud 5K!⁣

⁣The proceeds go to helping her build the Ahmaud Arbery Foundation which is all about helping young Black boys get the mental health tools they need. ⁣

⁣You can go straight to RunWithMaud.com to register.⁣ And…

  1. You can run in person in Atlanta. Or…⁣

  2. You can participate ANYWHERE in the world. ⁣

  3. Or you can simply register or donate there to show the love. ⁣


I’d like to say something difficult. ⁣

⁣Ahmaud’s family hasn’t received a large settlement that they could’ve used to help them launch the foundation. They have us. We have them. That’s it. ⁣

⁣That’s why we need to have their back, OK?⁣

⁣Love and appreciate you all!⁣
