Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ATLANTA - May 19, 2017 - Reality TV Star, Genise Shelton (Married to Medicine) and a host of local celebrities will join efforts with The Black and Missing Foundation (BAM FI) to host a 5k and family fun day in Atlanta. The event will take place at The Porter Sanford Arts Performing Center on Saturday, August 5th.
The family event will consist of a 5K walk, self defense classes, backpack giveaway, school supplies and a panel of experts including local law enforcement and families of missing persons along with performances by national and local entertainers. This event is being held to bring awareness to the hundreds of thousands of persons of color who are missing – across the nation and specifically address the epidemic in Atlanta and surrounding areas.
“I am excited to partner with the Black and Missing Foundation because I am outraged that our children – black and brown children – can go missing in this country and be treated as an afterthought. Where is the outcry for these children? We have to be the voice for the voiceless and fight to bring our children home! I support these efforts as a mother, daughter, wife and sister and plead with you to care enough to support and do something now before this hits close to your home.”
The event is a fundraiser for Our Children’s Keeper (http://www.ourchildrenskeeper.org/) in partnership with the Black & Missing Foundation, Inc. (BAM FI) http://www.blackandmissinginc.com/cdad/.
