Board member Stephanie Hamm emphasized the importance of having Get Fit Selma.

“COVID shut down the in-person Get Fit Selma for three years, although we were able to serve the community with drive-by testing and vaccinations and a virtual webinar about self-care during a pandemic,” Hamm said.

Sandra Wright, a McRae parent, said they are looking forward to bringing the event back.

“We are ready to provide this health-filled fun day again,” Wright said.

The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, Selma Alumnae Chapter and  McRae-Gaines Learning Center are co-sponsors of the event.
