Shreveport chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha hosts bike ride for heart health awareness
“We wanted to do something, and we knew that we were going to do something; but this just gave us a way to culminate the weekend and have a great time, great turnout and have some heart, healthy fun,” said Daphne Thibeaux, the chapter’s president.
Usually, the chapter hosts a wine tasting with the American Heart Association. However, COVID-19 derailed those plans.
“We haven’t been able to do that for a couple years, so this is such a great alternative,” said Jill Lucero, regional director of the American Heart Association. “It is everything that we encompass: exercise, health, wellness, safety.”
SB Rides provided the bikes and guided the participants during the event.
