MIAMI —Tracy Wilson Mourning, philanthropist and founder of the Honey Shine Mentoring Program, will host the organization’s first Honey Bug Run/Walk in honor of Women’s History Month at 8 a.m. Saturday at Women’s Park, 10251 W Flagler St. in Miami.
Organizers say the program is dedicated to the balance of mind, body and soul in girls and women. Honey Shine Inc.’s 5K race, they say, will further Wilson Mourning’s vision of developing the well-rounded woman. Wilson Mourning looks to continue the celebration and preservation of the enlightenment of women after Honey Shine’s expansion to Howard University in Washington, D.C., last fall.
“Honey Shine’s mission of empowering girls is at the core of everything we do. With March being Women’s History Month, we couldn’t think of a better time to have our first 5K,” said Wilson Mourning. “The location of the event comes as no coincidence; the Women’s Park places an emphasis on the strength and influence of women, and has always welcomed our girls with open arms. We strongly encourage those who are interested in volunteering with Honey Shine to register for this event as it is a great opportunity for mentorship, engagement and wellness.”
More than 150 “Honey Bugs” are expected to participate in the March run/walk. Patrons include the Mourning Family Foundation, JCP Printing and Designs, Baptist Health South Florida, and Miami-Dade County.
Registration is $25 for Honey Shine Members, and $35 for the public. For more information, visit www.honeyshine.org.
