We are grateful to God and to our many corporate supporters to be able to celebrate the 16th Annual Stairstep Foundation/His Works United (HWU) Church Olympics. The Church Olympics is an important aspect of the Stairstep Initiative to both build a vibrant African American Church Network (HWU) and to begin to eliminate the disparate health outcomes experienced by African Americans. Over the last decade the Church Olympics has allowed us to view both increased physical activity amongst African Americans and a wonderful collaboration and interaction of African American Churchs.
Please start to recruit teams and participants for the events and submit by July 1. We look for another wonderful year with great competition. Let’s see which church will take home the Trophy!
