American Indian Youth Running Strong aka Running Strong for American Indian Youth
November 27, 2012

I've raised funds and run for Billy Mills' team in the Marine Corps Marathon every year since 2009. Why? Because every single penny goes to help the youth and communities that TRS stands for. This nonprofit is all about helping American Indian Youth, no fringe, no fuss, no putting your money into helping people train or fly out to the races, etc. Plus, Billy Mills really cares about TRS, so much so that he comes every year to support the team and encourage our fundraising, in person! Truly an amazing man and an amazing charity.

American Indian Youth Running Strong aka Running Strong for American Indian Youth
April 27, 2011

This is an amazing charity that works hard to provide much needed funds for American Indian Youth. The money they raise goes directly to aiding in the immediate survival needs of young people in this country. If you want something to work, if you want good results, start with the children. This organization does.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the results of Running Strong For American Indian Youth as they provide funding for water wells, organic gardens, youth centers, food, etc.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

mention these ideas to Billy Mills. After all, he cares enough to travel almost all year long, speaking out for Native American Youth. He talks to people and he inspires us and he listens to us too. As it is, I would not change anything, but if I had ideas I'd tell him because he cares and he would listen.
