Join the Texas Wesleyan team in supporting Opal’s Walk for Freedom

05.16.2023 | By: Texas Wesleyan University

Show your TXWES pride and celebrate Juneteenth! Join us Monday, June 19 in the Historic Southside for Opal’s Walk for Freedom. Texas Wesleyan is proud to have a team participating in Opal’s Walk and all alumni and friends are invited to join. Sign up or donate to Opal’s Walk!

Opal’s Walk for Freedom is a 2.5-mile walk commemorating the historic walks made by Ms. Opal Lee to raise awareness about Juneteenth and ultimately inspire the creation of a federal holiday in its honor — and Ms. Lee is still going even at 96 years old! Join us in representing Texas Wesleyan at this special event, so grab your friends and sign up today!
