to all the strong hearted participants of the 2014 100 Mile Club!
We have enjoyed, and are thankful for the relationship with
all the participants, volunteers, and the Hopi communities who have
been a part in bringing together a diverse population of people
who share a passion for exercise through running and walking the
challenging trails that added uniqueness to each event.
The 100 Mile Club has just completed its final challenge at
the Hopi Veterans Memorial Center on Monday, August 25th with
5k, 2 and 1 mile courses. This 16 week walk/run program began as
a step forward to encourage people to come together to exercise
and build a foundation of health awareness.
With the 100 Mile Club coming to a close; we hope you all continue
to work on bettering blood glucose readings, make exercise a part
of your daily routine, and schedule annual doctors visits
- PREVENTION is the key. Lets not lose sight of goals that
you may have set when you started this journey. Its inspiring
to know that your body has built up on increasing heart rates, breathing
is easier during your exercise, and you increased your time and
distance in your walking and running. A lot of hard work right?
Yes, and this is the reason why logging your progress to aid as
a visual tool in evaluating your exercise patterns you worked so
hard for has paid off!
The 100 Mile Club is grateful that all events went on as scheduled.
In the past some events were postponed due to smoke in the air or
cancelled because of the rains washed out trails moments before
the event. The 100 Mile Club will be back for 2015; ready to challenge
you to more moments of greatness thats instilled in each and
everyone. Be Happy, Live, Laugh, Love and Keep Moving Hopi!

The 100 Mile Club provides residents of the Hopi community the opportunity
to walk or run 100 miles over the course of 16 weeks in an effort
to increase daily physical activity and lower the incidence of Type
II Diabetes in the community. Its a big goal to reach, but
with dedication and support, all participants can reach the goal
and then some.
