“I want to run to show my peers and young kids, that they can do it too, and be healthy and run for a purpose.” James Pine

The mission of the running programs is to:

  • Promote a greater quality of life for Lakota youth on Reservations in South Dakota
  • Support increased pride in cultural identity
  • Support education and educational goals
  • Increase positive publicity about the skills, values, and contributions of Native Americans thus counteracting the impact of the voluminous media attention to the problems.

“Every morning I get up and run the hour I am able to around the college in hopes that the youth and whoever else can grasp that as a positive outlet instead of tuning to the depressing situations that at times plague our people.” Warren Blue Bird

“Throughout my years, I realized that running is a universal activity that can help people. It helps with the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual aspects of life and that by having all four virtues in balance, one can certainly cope better with life’s challenges and with their personal surroundings.” Cory Black Feather
