HISTORY

The UpHill 5k is aimed at increasing the Health and Wellness of African-Americans in the City of Pittsburgh and is part of a deeply rooted legacy to bring awareness to health disparities that exist in the Hill District and beyond.

As far back as the 1980s Sala Udin, then Executive Director of the House of the Crossroads, started the Afro Dash to bring awareness to the need of African Americans to be more conscious of their physical and mental health; The Afro Dash started on Centre Ave and ran to the Highland Park Reservoir. The Afro Dash successfully continued for several years before eventually coming to a halt.
