Join the Bay Area Community Health Advisory Council (formerly African American Community Health Advisory Council) for this year’s Soul Stroll for Health and be a part of this exciting and empowering community event. Be one of the approximately 3,000 participants who will walk or run between 1-5 miles and participate in the Soul Stroll Health Fair with more than 50 resources & corporate partners distributing product and information.

SOUL STROLL has become 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 from 500 in 2002 to more than 3,000 participants in recent years. In addition to a 1-, 3-, or 5-mile run/walk, Soul Stroll provides on-site health screenings, children’s activities, and a health fair with more than 50 resource partners.

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

Soul Stroll has also evolved into a timely platform that represents several communities of color in the Bay Area, while focusing on important health issues and is considered a leader in those communities of need to highlight those relevant diseases.
