In Lakota culture, someone who achieves great success has a “give away” to thank their community of support. As part of his “give away”, Billy helped found Running Strong for American Indian Youth®. Today, Native American children, families, and the communities they live in benefit from Billy’s dream. To celebrate Billy’s victory 56 years ago, we have created a virtual race so everyone can Run With Billy!
Walk, run, or race as an individual or with your friends and family from August 1 to August 9 to support a healthy tomorrow by registering for the Run With Billy Race! Your contribution of $28.24 (Billy’s winning race time) will be recognized with an autographed bib from Billy which was designed by Pat Mills.
Submit your individual or group race photos to Hanna@IndianYouth.org to be featured in our photo gallery beginning August 1!
