Comedian Kevin Hart hit the scenic side with fans for a 5K run in Boston over the weekend. Hart and 300 fans ran and rode bicycles through part of the city Sunday morning, he calls it the Rally Run With Kevin Hart. He announced to fans on Twitter and Instagram Saturday to meet him for the run, but only if they were about being fit and not just a fan.
Kevin has teamed up with health and wellness app Rally Health to encourage the masses to get in shape. Serving as the brand’s first health ambassador, Hart is using his “What Now” tour as an avenue for comedy and fitness.
“I really do believe that laughter is the best medicine. Not only does it make you feel good, but I love knowing that it’s actually good for you, too,” Hart said, according to the Rally Health website. “I love the Rally Health mission and couldn’t be more excited to work with the Rally Health team to help consumers laugh a little more and make better decisions about their health and wellbeing.”
Hart had some words to share after the run.
