Q Parker of 112 has teamed up with Black Girls Run! to motivate women to stay healthy and active. The singer-songwriter-fitness enthusiast will make scheduled appearances throughout the national running group's 2013 Preserve the Sexy Tour including its National Conference and Race Weekend.
"I am very excited about my new partnership with Black Girls RUN! The beautiful members of BGR! are an inspiration to thousands of women who want to take control of their lives in every way. Partnering with BGR! in our common mission of increasing good health and wellness among women of color especially, is an honor for me. I am committed to using my national music and media platforms to helping spread the word about the great work BGR! does," Q Parker said.
The tour will run through cities across the country that have high obesity rates to host one-day health clinics and training programs. Q Parker will share his own path to health and wellness and will promote his fitness calendar, which will help fund breast cancer research and prevention.
