For one incredible week, our staff will guide you through the Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River Reservations in South Dakota, where you will witness the impact of Running Strong’s projects and get to talk with the grassroots partners we work with. As you explore this fascinating region of the country, you will be immersed in Lakota culture and you will learn about United States history from a different perspective.
The tour is not just about Running Strong—it is also a chance for you to visit revered cultural & historical landmarks. To make the week even more memorable, all who are on the tour will have the opportunity to meet and spend an evening with our national spokesperson, Olympic Gold Medalist Billy Mills.
