Team Running Strong

Team Running Strong The ONLY charity running in the Marine Corps Marathon to raise money for American Indian Youth!
(2)

In 2004, the Marine Corps Marathon™ chose our National Spokesperson, Olympic Gold Medalist Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota), as the official starter and Team Running Strong was born. Billy Mills's success exemplifies Running Strong for American Indian Youth ( www.indianyouth.org ). Orphaned at the age of 12, struggling against poverty and prejudice, he became the only American to ever win the 10,000m Olympic Gold Medal. He also served as a captain in the Marine Corps.
