2019 Kick Off the New Year
Half Marathon and 5K Run
The Winslow Indian Health Care Center (WIHCC) Health Promotion Disease Prevention (HPDP) department hosted its 3nd Annual Kick off the New Year Half Marathon and 5K run in Tolani Lake, Arizona on Saturday, January 26, 2019. A total of seventy-two runners came from all over the Navajo Nation like Pine Hill, Farmington, Church Rock, Ramah, New Mexico and the Arizona communities of Kaibeto, Rock Point, Kayenta, Grand Canyon and Cameron. Each year, HPDP coordinates events in different communities in the Winslow Service Area and this year, the hidden beautiful site of Tolani Lake community was selected. Tolani Lake’s trails were very sandy and participants challenged themselves against a steep hill and the chilly weather.
HPDP strives to promote healthy living through physical activity, nutrition, and culture. Our goal is to have individuals keep up the momentum throughout the year to reach their personal goals or simply just to stay active. The mission of WIHCC is to provide assessable, quality, and cost effect health care therefore, these long distance runs are free and in their backyard, as many local communities have their own trails to share.
HPDP is willing to provide these services for each community because after all we are here to work with the communities with a common goal of achieving healthy living.
HPDP would like to thank the participants, Tolani Lake Chapter and community, Navajo County, Navajo Nation Police- Dilkon, and the Winslow Indian Health Care Center staff for their participation, time, and assistance in making this a successful event.
