the cause…

Utilizing the run and festival to raise awareness on topics that affect our community, such as:
1. Mental health
2. Physical health
3. Financial literacy
4. Preventative care and total wellness
5. To fundraise and redistribute capital earned into community development programs like The HeartBeat Music and Performing Arts Academy and Community Cooperative Projects.

About San Diego HipHop5k and Festival

We will be organizing a 3.1 mile walk/run through Southeast San Diego. Inviting 1,000 people to participate with us we are going to march together through our neighborhoods in a show of solidarity, health and innovative thought. We want to create a spark of creativity and forward thinking in the community...

Along the route

Along the course, there are tons of amazing art work to motivate your run and raise your spirit. We use original art pieces that depict visions of a bright future. Positive words and phrases are posted throughout the course.
Each piece of art will go with an overall theme and be specifically tailored to each neighborhood.

By decorating the area with large paintings and other artful expressions of positivity, optimism, empowerment and development, the runner or walker will have the incredible experience of traveling through an interactive art gallery with a beginning middle and end theme.

We celebrate our elders for paving the way and enriching our community. Free pampering sessions will be provided at the Hiphop5k and festival for seniors 60 and up.


CPR training…

Not many people understand the importance of CPR training and how many lives can be saved. We will be offering CPR Training at our event. Listen to what the American Heart Association has to say about the importance of CPR Training.

Our goal is for 1,000 people to engage in this 5k. We will encourage the youngest and the oldest people to participate. This is a call to combat the numerous preventable illnesses that plague Americans today: diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure and obesity.


We will have a large variety of activities other than the 5K itself! Face painting, massage, gifts & prizes, talent show, 20ft tall wall climbing station and much more! This will be a great fun filled event to attend with your friends and family.
