1) CBS: Her running group became a movement: ‘Latinas In Motion’


As a Philadelphian born to Puerto Rican parents, Elaine Gonzalez Johnson knew Latinas were at higher risk of things like obesity and diabetes. So when she wanted some running buddies, Elaine put out an open invitation on Facebook for people to join her. Every time she did a run, more women joined her. Now her organization 'Latinas in Motion' has grown into a nonprofit with chapters in 10 states and Puerto Rico. There’s also an annual 5K in Philly, open to all. The next Latinas in Motion 5K fundraiser is Saturday, June 8 in Philadelphia. You can sign up here. Support if you can!
