The running club promotes health, clean living, and uplifts the community all through the simple act of running. The core belief is that strength is in numbers, therefore runners run as one unit, sacrificing pace for the bigger goal of unity.

“Everyone is asking me why I am getting so healthy now, they wonder if I had a health scare and I tell them No … and I don’t want to. I just wanted to control my health before it controlled me. As a young black man, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancer are always a concern. I wanted to change my life around to try and stay away from these ailments.” Floss explained.
