United Tribes moving it
19 October 2009

WALKING CONNECTION: Avid walker Joey McLoud, United Tribes registrar, had a good stride going for the 7th Annual National Native American “Just Move It Day.” A group of UTTC walkers joined the October 14 event to promote physical activity for American Indians. Students in three physical education courses took part, along with members of the Wellness Center staff and other employees and faculty. Cool, rainy weather forced UTTC walkers into the gymnasium, where 20 laps makes one mile. The national goal was for one million participants, including those at the annual meeting of the National Congress of American Indians in Palm Springs, CA.
