To support a healthy tomorrow for Native American Youth
56 years ago, Oglala Lakota runner Billy Mills’ dreams came true when he crossed the finish line first in the 10,000 meter event at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Winning the gold medal after a childhood and lifetime of hardship would become the heart of Billy’s Lakota giveaway, and 20 years later he started Running Strong for American Indian Youth to raise happier, healthier Native American youth.
With the Olympics returning to Tokyo this year after much anticipation, now is the chance for Billy to make dreams come true again for a whole new generation of Native American youth. From ensuring students have the supplies to succeed in school no matter their home circumstances to funding teachers who work with majority-Native classrooms, Billy Mills and Running Strong are committed to helping this next generation of Native youth get their own wings of an eagle and we wouldn’t be able to do it without you.
Proceeds for the Dream Like Billy Virtual 5K and 10K Run/Walk will support the programs of Running Strong for American Indian Youth to raise happy, healthy Native American youth. Your support of $28.24, Billy’s winning race time, will be recognized with an autographed racing bib from Billy and with the appreciation that you have helped Running Strong continue our mission of meeting critical and long-term needs of Native American communities across the country.
