Oakland Rapper T-K.A.S.H. Running Marathon To Stem Gun Violence

(AllHipHop News) Oakland rapper T-K.A.S.H. will participate in the Oakland Running Festival this weekend.

The rapper is running a full, 26 mile marathon to help stem gun violence in Oakland, California.

“Oakland had 2000 victims of gun violence in 2011″ said T-K.A.S.H. ” The normality of guns in the community has been an issue since I was a child here. I hope that my participation in this marathon will help bring awareness to what needs to be done to solve this issue. Ideally, I feel that key elements to a child’s happiness is cultivation of their physical fitness level and emotional well being.”

T-K.A.S.H. is being sponsored by the Hip-Hop Chess Federation, which also works in the region to provide a positive outlet for the youth, through hip-hop, chess and martial arts.

“T-K.A.S.H. has worked directly with the HHCF to promote physical fitness and peace on the streets,” HHCF Founder Adisa Banjoko stated. “He has stayed on the frontlines to confront the cancer of violence in our community. When he moderated our 5 year anniversary event last month, said he wanted to run the full marathon at the Oakland Running Festival for the cause of nonviolence. The HHCF commends him for being so courageous physically and philosophically.”

T-K.A.S.H., who will run the full 26 miles on March 25, has recorded a new song titled “Run,” to motivate people to stay focused and fit.
