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 has impacted at least 50,000 Native American youth through programs that celebrate Native running traditions while getting participants MOVING.
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.
UPDATE: Thank you for your interest. But seats for the dinner are SOLD OUT.
