Flyin’ West by Pearl Cleage

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service

Following the end of the Civil War, many former slaves, anxious to leave the South and the increasing disappointments and dangers of Reconstruction, took advantage of The Homestead Act and went West to build new lives for themselves and their families. Many of these homesteaders were black women who overcame tremendous odds to work their own land and make a place for themselves in an often harsh and forbidding environment. Set in 1898, FLYIN’ WEST is the story of some of these African-American female pioneers who settled, together, in the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas. “Pearl Cleage’s FLYIN’ WEST…[is] a real crowd pleaser, and its characters have humor and vitality…Cleage [is] a natural-born storyteller…” —Washington Post.

Bring your family to this fun, inspiring, community fundraiser, which calls attention to the need for organ donation and prevention of kidney disease – the 9th leading cause of death in the United States.

You will be greeted by a cast of characters including: Ravens Super Fans, Captain Dee Fense and Major Offense; Doc, the TowsonUniversity mascot; the Chuck E Cheese mascot; stilt walkers from Big Biz Entertainment, and the Science Cheerleaders.

Following Zumba warm-up exercises by Fit 4 Life and a brief opening ceremony, the Walk will kick off at 10 a.m.  After taking 2-mile path around the stadium, everyone can reconvene in Parking Lot B for complimentary refreshments, including apples from Giant, chips from Frito Lay and UTZ, Entenmann’s and Tastykake desserts, KIND bars, CSX water, and coffee and hot chocolate Chesapeake Roasting Company.

Additional activities include enjoying tunes from DJ Reddz; watching performances by Underground Dance Academy and D’s Magic, face painting by Artist and Craftsman Supply, making wood kits in the Home Depot Kids Club, painting with Wine and Canvas Baltimore, exploring the Playworks “Kid Zone,” taking the Norris Automotive test drive and learning safety activities from Cares Children Are Safe.

Adults also can take NKF-MD’s free Kidney Health Risk Assessment to see if they are at risk for chronic kidney disease. Following a simple Body Mass Index calculation, blood pressure measurement and short six-question questionnaire, participants will receive brief consultations with medical professionals and dietitians to learn about nutrition and kidney disease, as well as general diet and wellness guidelines.

Funds raised through Kidney Walk will directly support the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland’s (NKF-MD) patient services, education and research efforts. Serving central and western Maryland, the Delmarva Peninsula and portions of West Virginia, NKF-MD is the area’s only voluntary health agency dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of kidney and urinary tract diseases.
