Established in 2004 and having a presence in more than 16 cities The National African American Male Wellness Walk (NAAMWW) provides a 5k walk and run as an awareness campaign addressing the need for black men to live longer from preventable diseases. The heartbeat of each walk initiative is our health screenings where we screen for blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, HIV, STD/STI and prostate cancer for men who may not be seeing the doctor regularly. We help men understand that through prevention they can live longer. Our mantra is for them to know their numbers, get moving and visit the doctor annually. The NAAMWW attended by over 100,000 people annually made up of men, women and children. All are able to participate in the walk and health screenings for free.

Volunteers will help with event setup, direct attendees to their health screening stations, pass out refreshments.

Mission Statement

Description

The National African American Male Wellness Agency

Since 2004, The National African American Male Wellness Agency (AAMWA 501- C3 charity) has taken a stance to reduce disparities in premature death and chronic diseases among African American (AA) males by providing over 4,000 free health screenings yearly and innovative health education programs. Annually, the agency engages AA males in over 16 U.S Cities (Columbus, OH, DC, Atlanta, Charlotte to name a few). We have been able to develop a strong presence with AA men through our innovative grassroots strategies allowing us to connect with men who likely would not participate in health programming.

By engaging the AA community in our prevention programming and health awareness campaigns the African American Male Wellness Agency (AAWellness) has taken ownership in saving the lives of black men and their families. Our mantra is for men to know their numbers, visit the doctor regularly, and get moving.

With wellness being a holistic issue and the nature of the projects performed by our organization, over the past five years we have catered to the entire lifestyle of the AA male . We have embraced an expanded focus from health and wellness alone to include fatherhood, financial wellness, mental health, mentorship and research initiatives as our core focus areas.
