Soul Stroll is BACHAC’s premier Signature Event. Established in 2002 to increase awareness about good nutrition and physical activity as keys to better health, the event’s attendance has grown to more than 3,000 participants in recent years. In addition to a 1-, 3-, or 5-mile run/walk, Soul Stroll provides health screenings and a health marketplace with resource partners. See details about our 2020 event and register today!

Our partnership with community-based organizations is an important component of Soul Stroll’s success. The event has attracted such well-known celebrities as Kim Coles, Laila Ali, Danny Glover, Ben Vereen, Donna Richardson Joyner, and Stedman Graham to serve as honorary chairs.

Soul Stroll’s popularity has led BACHAC to develop a toolkit for other cities to replicate the event. Organizations in Tempe, Arizona; Sacramento, California; and Madison, Wisconsin, have started their own Soul Stroll events.
