Oprah Winfrey will be touring the country in 2020, but it’s not in a bid to win the White House.

Winfrey, who was rumored to run for president before she rejected the idea, announced she will be touring the U.S. for the “Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus” national tour, according to CNN.

The tour, which is presented by WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined), will include talks from Winfrey, who will discuss “the personal ups and downs of her wellness journey and guides them to develop their own 2020 action plan through motivating conversations, the latest in wellness research and insightful interactive workbook exercises,” she said in a statement.

“What I know for sure is we can all come together to support a stronger, healthier, more abundant life — focused on what makes us feel energized, connected and empowered,” Oprah Winfrey said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.

”As I travel the country, my hope for this experience is to motivate others to let 2020 be the year of transformation and triumph — beginning first and foremost with what makes us well. This is the year to move forward, let’s make it happen in 2020!”

Winfrey will visit cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte and New York.

Tickets will be available on Sept. 9 for WW members. On Sept. 13, the general public can buy tickets.

Winfrey will donate $1 million of the tour proceeds toward the WW Good, which is a philanthropic branch of WW that helps feed underserved communities, according to The Associated Press.
