Run for Resilience (May 23-30)

May 23, 2021 - May 30, 2021

The National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, invites you to join us for a virtual run/walk to raise funding and awareness for NCUIH’s critical work that supports the resiliency of the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) community through meaningful change in the social equity of health care.

Every step, stride and effort builds resiliency!

Tell us why you run/walk! After you register, take a picture or selfie with a sign to tell us why you run/walk to post on social media with #runforresilience hashtag to be featured on NCUIH’s social sites!

Q: What does the money raised go toward?

A: 100 percent of fundraising dollars will go directly to NCUIH, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to support NCUIH’s work toward the development of quality, accessible, and culturally-competent health services for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) living in urban settings.
