The 1st Just Move It event of 2005 was held in New Mexico at the Santa Ana Pueblo. 63 participants from the Santa Ana Pueblo joined the National Indian Health Board leadership to move their way to wellness and earn a Nike water bottle. They walked, danced, stretched, and enjoyed a light circuit workout. National leaders in Indian Health, together with children and adults from the Pueblo got moving with jump ropes, fitness balls, weights, and aerobic dance. The whole group demonstrated their commitment to wellness with an outdoor 1 mile walk in the winter cold.

The event celebrated the launch of www.justmoveit.org - a new website that will allow Native communities from across the country to join this national effort to get ONE MILLION Native people moving.
