We Put Youth
Our focus on youth programs fosters change across age groups and entire communities.
Our leadership is committed to preserving the traditions, languages and sanctity of American Indian communities.
We Help Where Needed Most
Rather than coming into a community and announcing what we will do, we listen to hear what our partners tell us they need.

Running Strong Changes Lives
This winter, we’re distributing more than 5,000 winter parkas, snow boots, hats, gloves, and scarves to Native American communities across the country as we enter what the Farmers’ Almanac forecasts to be a below-normal, blizzard-filled winter.
