THE STORY:

Hi friends and family! On October 30, 2016, I will be running my first marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I was inspired to go for it when I found that I could raise funds for an incredible organization that supports the health and well-being of Native American youth across the U.S. This organization is called Running Strong for American Indian Youth and was created by Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota), a 1964 10k Gold Medal Olympian from Pine Ridge, SD. If you have a moment, read Billy Mills' inspiring story here: http://indianyouth.org/http://indianyouth.org/billy-mills. In 2014, Mills was awarded the President's Council Lifetime Achievement Award, which is given each year to up to 5 individuals "whose careers have greatly contributed to the advancement or promotion of physical activity, fitness, sports, or nutrition nationwide." Many of you know that years ago, I spent almost 4 years living on the Navajo (Dine) Nation in Northeastern Arizona. While there, the Navajo students and I created a walking/running program based on Dine traditional teachings, called "A Better You." While training for this marathon, I am thinking back on those special days and I am still inspired by those teachings. Each year, both Native and non-Native members of Team Running Strong come together from across the country to run or walk 26.2 miles for the future of American Indian youth. Please support my first marathon by making a contribution to this wonderful organization. http://indianyouth.org/ Thank you! Maree
