On May 17th, 2015, Team One Spirit, 15 Lakota athletes, is running in the Colfax Marathon for Lakota youth and to raise funds for youth programs and youth centers on Pine Ridge Reservation.
Pine Ridge Reservation is home to 20,000 youth and is the poorest place in the Western Hemisphere outside of Haiti. The goal is to fund programs that will provide Lakota youth with hope, pride and life. Just this year, in four months, 11 kids committed suicide. The youngest was 12 years old. 241 Lakota youth were treated for attempted suicide.
Show your support for Team ONE SPIRIT and Lakota Youth.
No more hungry children on Pine Ridge Reservation and no more youth suicides.
