Arutisuse Run 5K
Tampa, Florida4810 N Himes Ave., Tampa, Florida, 33614
Sat 17th December 2022
Starting at 07:30
The 2022 Arutisuse Run 5K:Arutisuse ( pronounced Ah-rut-tee-SUS-see) is a holiday that celebrates the Foundational Black American culture of freedom fighting and resistance. Arutisuse means Arise In the traditional Foundational Black American TUT language. During the course Arutisuse Run participants will time travel through different periods of resistance culminating in a festive welcome at the finish line! During the antebellum slavery period in America, many Foundational Black Americans would cleverly plot and execute their escape from bondage around the Christmas season. These enslaved freedom warriors understood that slave owners would be more preoccupied with holiday festivities during this time of year. Also, enslaved Foundational Black Americans were allowed more access to visit family and friends on other plantations during this season as well. The rebel warriors used these relaxed policies as an opportunity to rise to freedom." -Tariq NasheedThis event will be hosted by Nyan Pharmacy.A portion of the proceeds from this race will be benefiting our cause to provide support to organizations that advocate for vulnerable children who are in hostile environments.
