NATIVE HEALTH’s Walk in Your Moc’s 5k (3.1 miles) will be on Saturday, September 17th, 2022. Urban American Indian/Alaska Natives living in Maricopa County are encouraged to walk with your loved ones (pets too) in your tribal moccasins, to celebrate a new year and reflect on what our ancestors have endured for us to be here. Moccasins not required to participate.
The Walk In Your Mocs series is a non-competitive walking group. It was designed to help encourage urban Maricopa County Native American/Alaska Native communities to not only be physically active but to also support mental, spiritual and emotional wellness. Being active everyday strengthens the body and serves as one the most powerful forms of preventative healthcare. If possible, we encourage you to walk in your tribal moccasins to Celebrate Life and to move with intention and prayer as means of spiritual practice that our ancestors have always understood. Also, this would be a time to reflect on what your ancestors have endured in their mocs for us to be here.
In order to receive our incentives, you will have to email documentation/proof of your mileage to: email@example.com. You may do this by taking a snapshot of your screen on your phone to show how many miles you walked. You may utilize any fitness app you use or have on your phone and/or watch to track your mileage.
