The NAACP will host the Annual Juneteen Celebration, June 16, 2012 at M.L. King High School. The day is filled with fun activities for families.

Beginning at 7:00AM registration will open for the Annual Sickle Cell Walk. Guests are encouraged to participate. The donation of $20 will include a free t-shirt with all profits to benefit sickle cell research. The 5K Walk/Run will begin at 8:00AM.

At 11:00AM the softball fields will be taken over by our all male softball squad to enhance team building skills between two generations of African-American men. This “Brother to Brother” competition is just in time for a Father’s Day  Celebration for all to enjoy.

Additionally, the Youth and College Division will host a field filled with fun games and healthy activities for all to enjoy. The day will begin at 11:00AM to include tug a war, sack races and more. This is definitly a great way for young people to get involved and learn about the NAACP.
