The event was hosted in collaboration with the Gila River Wellness Center and Communications & Public Affairs Office and featured a 5k individual competitive run and relay.
The walk is also a part of the Gila River Indian Community Health & Wellness Initiative which, offers unique opportunities for families to stay active.
Several informational health booths were set up to provide education and awareness about physical activity.
Afterwards a meal was provided to all the participants, along with music entertainment by DJ Redline.
Everyone who registered received a snazzy beach towel and shirt.
