Ali laced up her vision with Columbus Girls Who Walk (currently rebranding as Wellness Ave), a fresh twist on wellness and camaraderie in Columbus, Ohio. Ali saw the trails and city as a place to empower and unite women, turning every walk into a mini-adventure for a chance to connect. Her mission was simple yet revolutionary: to unite women of all backgrounds in Columbus through the simple act of walking, turning each step into an opportunity for wellness and the creation of enduring friendships.
