EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2016
If you know me, you know how passionate I am about working with the Lakota Oyate on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Did you know that conditions in this area are second only to Haiti in poverty, lack of resources, lack of electricity and running water? Diabetes is 6 times higher, infant mortality is equivalent to a third world country. . . And yet, it is a beautiful place, full of sacredness, quiet and a people with a deep spirituality, a unique culture and language that they will share when they feel your are trustworthy. Help me raise money for Re-Member, for which I am currently President of the board of directors, to use in supporting the people on Pine Ridge, building relationships, sustainability and hope. PLUS--this will be my FIRST 5K walk following my knee replacement! So come on! Give me a hand! Ellen
