Men Run Deez Streets Virtual 5K Run
Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM (CDT)
You've always known there
was something different about you.
A yearning on the inside that there
was more to you
and more for you to do on this earth. When you watch
the superhero movies they speak to you because deep down
you know you too were built for greatness. You have power, speed,
strength, compassion, influence, perserverance. Everything that you have
done up until this point has prepared you for this moment. There is no turning back!
Now is your time!
You have a chance to do good
in the world. Join the league of Supers like
The Machine, DMo, Blade, Tiger Blood, Kid Dynamite,Subzero, The Express, Just Blaze, Pappa 2 Smooth, The Hotness Monster, Gazelle, Blue Collar, Vamos, Mr. Next Level, Mr. CTA, The Pacemaker, Da Thunda and Non Stop Popper
and make a difference. Come out and join the men of
Men Run Deez Streets in a virtual 5k
to support the mission of MRDS
to improve the health of black men in our communities through
diet and nutrition. You can Run the Streets of your
neighborhood, on your favorite path or better
yet, come and join us on Lake Shore Drive
by La Rabida Hospital.
Be a superhero and let your running alter ego come out!
After you register and pay, a bib personalized with the name of your alter ego and super power number will be emailed to you to wear on race day. Not sure of what your super power or true alter ego is? No problem, our Research Department will do the work for you and email a customized bib for you to download and print.
Too busy making the world a better place to come out and run with the Men Run Deez Streets Supers? No problem, just take a selfie after your 5k run with your bib and post it to the Men Run Deez Streets Community Page on Facebook.
MRDS bling will be given out on race day or sent through the mail.
Help us keep our high quality programming in the community.
MEN RUN DEEZ STREETS, INC (MRDS) is a group dedicated to helping Men in urban communities take fitness seriously. Founded in 2013, in Chicago by Terrance Lyles, Dale Morrison, Baron Rush, Iman Sadiq and Reginald Williams, MRDS inspires, encourages, supports, and coaches Men to adopt running and fitness as a consistent, healthy lifestyle. MRDS recruits Men ages 18 and over of all backgrounds to help us move forward with our mission to become examples of health and fitness in our communities. As most of us are aware, the health of black men is challenged by many factors including sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy food choices, stress, micro-aggressions to self esteem, lack of access to quality health care, alcohol and drugs. As leaders of the community, we want black men to be at the forefront of modeling a way of life which can drastictly reduce diseases in our community such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and stroke. We believe through healthy eating habits and lifestyle that we can change communities from the ground up. MRDS supports running and multi-sport clubs all over the city of Chicago including Black Girls Run! (BGR), Women Run the World! (WRTW), Sole-Tri-Sisters (STS), Team Run Burn Shrink (RBS), Elijah Running Club, Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) and other fitness teams in their quests to help our communities grow in health and wellness. It takes a village to inspire others and to accomplish our mission of bringing a multitude of men into a healthier way of life. Because MRDS refuses to allow financial barriers to prevent our members from transforming their lives and communities, our membership, all of our activities, lectures and training are either free or at a nominal fee. Please support us and be a part of the fight to improve the health of our men and communities through running.
