The idea behind Verizon Wireless "Potential of Us" is to inspire the public to give back to the community in various ways.

This weekend is Live Challenge #4 with Verizon Wireless, Morris Chestnut and Black Girls Run founders Ashley Hicks and Toni Carey, partnering to organize run/walk events challenging the community to get and stay physically active.

I had the opportunity to interview Morris Chestnut about this weekend Potential Of Us Run/Walk Challenge and how he stays connected to his family.

My interview with Morris was fun and filled with a lot of humor. While I would love to share all the things that were said during the interview, to save time and keep focused here are the main questions and answers.

Onica (MommyFactor): The Verizon Wireless"Potential of Us" program offers so many ways to inspire the community, what made you pick being part of the run/walk event with Black Girls Run?

Morris Chestnut: Having a healthy and active lifestyle is something that's important. I'm aware that I have lot of female fans and joining the 5k Run/Walk with Black Girls Run is a great way to inspire them to join in. I also have a daughter and I want this to be a example for her to live healthy.

Onica (MommyFactor): How did you prepare for joining in the 5k Run/Walk?

Morris Chestnut: I was already working out and being active so I didn't have to prepare much this time. But if I needed to I'd spend some extra time in the gym.

Onica (MommyFactor): How do you make time for your family?

Morris Chestnut: My family is very important to me. No matter what there's time for them. They keep me grounded and stable so I need them and to be with them.

I really enjoyed interviewing Morris and thank him for taking the time to talk with me. And because he teased me about not joining in the 5k Run/Walk in LA, I promise if there's a 5k Run/Walk in NYC that he walking in, I'll be there!

For now I'll be joining in via the "Potential Of Us" online challenges and you can also. The challenges aren't hard and are based on a range of activities from reading to a child to performing a random act of kindness.

Once you've visited the Potential Of Us site and picked an opportunity, then share how you are doing with the challenges by sending your photos via Twitter to @VZWnews or @VZWcameka using the hashtag #PotentialofUs

I'm excited to join Verizon Wireless, Morris Chestnut and the other actors to celebrate Black History this month, hope you'll join us!
