30th Anniversary Celebration

This year Wings celebrates 30 years empowering Native American youth and their families through running. “The Earth Circle Foundation, Inc.” was created in 1988 by Will Channing, Oren Lyons and Ando Hixon. Soon after, Wings of America became the foundation’s sole program. By November of the same year, the first Wings National Team captured both the men’s and women’s team titles at the TAC/USA National Cross Country Championships in Raleigh, NC. Today the organization boasts 30 National team titles and tens of thousands of program participants.

Please join Wings on Thursday, August 16th at 6:00pm as we celebrate three decades of positive youth development in Indian Country. Our “Long Run Fundraiser” will be held at the Hotel Santa Fe Hacienda & Spa. Tickets are $175 per person and include pre-dinner cocktails, dinner featuring Native cuisine and a seat in the room for what promises to be a compelling panel conversation: “Value Change for Survival”. Panel speakers include Oren Lyons, Billy Mills, N. Scott Momaday, Roxanne Swentzell and Regina Lopez-Whiteskunk. Each will bring a unique perspective to a conversation moderated by Wings Executive Director, Dustin Martin.

If you would like to reserve your seats today, please fill out the registration form HERE.

You may also call the Wings office at (505) 982 6761 or email: 30years@wingsofamerica.org

All donations are tax-deductible ($125 of each dinner ticket). Your contributions will support the next 30 years of Wings programming and help uphold Native runners’ position in the history books of modern athletic competition.
