Divas of the Lowcounty Steppin’

DSCN0769 DSCN0776Lakeethia Smalls is the CEO/Founder of Distinguished Divas of the Lowcountry. In her own words she says struggling with my own weight, I set out to start a walking/running group because people were always aking how I did it. I knew there were things that I wanted to do in my own community & surrounding areas. This is when I came up with Distinguished Divas of the Lowcountry. We pull women from Colleton, Dorchester, Hampton and Orangeburg counties thus far, but we are hoping to reach more women in other counties. We travel to the members hometowns and pound that pavement, one step at a time. We have R&B Line Dancing classes, we partner up with as many as we can during the week and we’re always looking forward to our Saturday morning walks. We’re currently incorporating a trainer to work with us in the near future. We have women from all ages, but we’re currently seeking more of our older, wiser, dazzling divas. In January, we will open the floor for more women of all ages, groups, races, and sizes. Not all of us walk or run to lose weight. Some do just to stay healthy or fit or to support a friend. Smalls later added that they are discussing their goals and objectives; the first objective is walking a million miles; second, to put a million pounds on the pavement; and lastly a goal to raise one million dollars. The Divas will gladly accept any donations or sponsorships. McClures Wrecker service stepped up and will sponsor the next walk, to be announced. Sponsorships consist of drinks, ice, healthy snacks for energy, etc. Contact Lakeethia at DistinguishedDivas14@gmail.com

Move over…. The Dazzling Divas are coming through.
