If you any compassion and know the true history of the American Indian , how can you not donate to this worthy cause . Where I come from , when I see a need or when I can serve , I don't even think about it . I take action , action that is the purpose of the awakened soul .
I commend your cause I agree that native American people deserve rights and equality. After all the years of oppression it is about time to give them a voice and run strong.
This is a great organization. They educate the youth to get along in the real world while keeping the culture of the youth intact
Running Strong for American Indian Youth is a worthwhile charity doing good work.
I just made a small donation to your great organization. However, please do not send me more than one appeal per year. Also, please do not send me any sort of gift as I cannot use them and hate to toss them. Please send them to future donors and I will continue to support your very worthwhile organization!
Billy and Pat have an amazing story and are making a difference in Indian country. Billys words are passionate and inspirational. I last saw him speak at the Nike N7 2015 conference and he moved the 300 attendees. Each person was captivated by his stories and strength in words. Thank you Billy!!
As far as I am concerned this organization preys on senior citizens. My Mom constantly gets calls as late as 10pm and is solicited by mail more than once a month. They guilt people into donations.
Review from Guidestar
My grandparents always supported American Indian Youth Running Strong. Both of them have now passed, I have always donated to this cause when I was able over the years, but since my grandfather passed I now make annual donations in memory of my grandparents every year. When I pass my children will do the same, our family will continue on with this tradition because we strongly believe in the need.
In memory of Harold J. Haley & Myrtle Haley.

This was the first year I was able to go on Running Strongs reservation tour. It was fantastic ! I had gone to Slim Butte working on greenhouses in 2001 and was amazed at the amount of work that volunteers and inhabitants were doing. The tour this year was well organized and everything was forseen and handled beautifully, even when the weather didn't cooperate. The highlight for me was actually meeting "The Man", himself, Billy Mills and participating in his Wacipi !
Running Strong for American Indian Youth has for been a presence for decades, celebrating the culture and history of Native Americans and finding innovative solutions for the pressing challenges they face today.
