Everyone who participated in the Million Mile March event with us made it back! It was a huge success! The Million Mile Mark kick started the month of March with 220 registered participants to fight against diabetes. Participants were asked to increase their physical activities by running, walking, swimming, etc. and reporting their miles weekly to the Million Mile March team. As a group, everyone virtually walked from Los Angeles to New York which is approximately 3,000 miles one way. The group walked a combined total of 8,866.26 miles, taking us not only to New York, but back to Los Angeles and beyond!  

Along the journey back to Los Angeles, stops to several tribal reservations, including Oneida Indian Nation Reservation (NY), Tonawanda Band of Seneca Reservation (NY), and Pokagon Band of Potatawami Reservation Dowagiac (MI), Meskwaki Nation Reservation Tama (IA), Winnebago Tribe Reservation (IA), Navajo Nation Reservation Window Rock (AZ), and Morongo Band Reservation Cabazon (CA) added to the fun.


To celebrate, the Healthy Roads Diabetes Prevention Program held a Million Mile March Celebration after the completion of the Million Mile March event. A celebration was held at the Eagle Rock Recreation Center on April 11, 2015 for all of the participants who were active throughout the month and contributed to the success of the event’s goal as well as their own goal(s). Those in attendance were treated to activities that included a 15 course circuit training and a mile long walk around the park. In addition, food was catered by Andi Gonzales taco stand and ending the day with certificates of completion and raffle prizes.

Thanks go to all the United American Indian Involvement staff and participants that made this event possible. Stay tune for the next event!
