Over 150 runners/walkers and supporters came out for the 2022 NB3FIT Community XC Race on Sunday, November 13. The community run is held annually by the NB3 Foundation to in an effort to encourage healthy activities during Native American Heritage Month! This noncompetitive race is one fun way we choose to promote family and community health during November. We also host the Zero to 60 Challenge and NB3FIT Month campaigns each year.

We were happy to see our NB3FIT Cross Country team and  Running Medicine youth runners take on the 2k, 3k and 5k courses Sunday! These youth are running at their best this time of year and is such a encouraging sight to see.  However, the ever-popular Family 1K race always seems to steal the show. Families with babies, parents and grandparents all join in on the final race together. We love to see that families are choosing healthy activities, not only for their children, but for their family as whole!

We thank Santa Ana Golf Club for their support of the foundation and Native youth. They allow us to host our race on their course each year, and it never disappoints. Special thank you to Nike N7 for contributing race shirts and for our community allies for coming out and spreading information to families. The race isn’t possible without our volunteers who consist of staff family members and program youth parents. All of  who show up early in the morning to help make sure the day runs smoothly: making the race a true community effort from start to finish.

We hope to see you all again next year!
