Rest In Peace Malik Samir Werts

On January 31st, 2020, we tragically lost this beautiful life as another victim of a gun violence. Malik was a brother, bestfriend, son, cousin, entrepreneur (PWRD BY UNBOXED) and clearly a gifted artist. Race 4 Achievement had the pleasure of him designing this year’s shirt design. In the spirit of continuing his legacy, for the first time in #Race4Wanza history, we will have a select number of T-Shirts for sell. as supplies last.

To further support his family, click this link to donate to his GoFundme.
