Pine Ridge Indian Reservation runners compete in marathon, fueled by Tanka
Team One Spirit, a running team from Pine Ridge Reservation, competed in the Colfax Marathon in Denver in May. Tanka donated our "Live Life Powerfully" stickers and a case of Apple Orange Peel Tanka Sticks to the event.

One Spirit is a Native-American service organization founded to assist and support American Indians -- their present focus is on the Lakota in South Dakota. Team One Spirit competes to raise awareness and funds for projects that support and inspire Native youth.

Organizer Lori Jackson said, "Our runners did an amazing job, finishing 7th, 11th and 17th in their divisions of approx. 1000 competitors. They did the Lakota people proud."
