To support a healthy tomorrow for Native American Youth
At the 1964 Olympics, Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota Sioux) shocked the world and came from behind to win the gold medal in the 10,000 meters race. He was, and is still, the only American to win a gold medal in the 10K event. In Lakota culture, someone who achieves great success has a “give away” to thank their community of support. As part of his “give away”, Billy helped found Running Strong for American Indian Youth. Today, Native American children, families, and the communities they live in benefit from Billy’s dream. You can help.
Proceeds for the Run With Billy 10K and 5K 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.
Running Strong is able to do incredibly meaningful work because of the support we receive from you, our donors. We invite you to make a difference in the lives of American Indian youth today by donating to our cause. Your contribution will go directly toward supporting our programs.
