- ASPIRE 2020 Virtual Fun Run
September 28, 2020 - September 30, 2020
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Welcome to the 2020 ASPIRE Virtual Fun Run/Walk/Swim/Cycle. In fact, this event can be done at any point over the conference competitively or for fun! If you are interested, please sign up and select the corresponding event you would like to participate in. The week before the conference you will be sent a ‘virtual bib’ and can submit results from your run, walk, swim, or cycle on this page during the conference.
Please do not use Grant Funds to purchase the Fun Run.
The Fun Run also provides an opportunity to donate funds to a service project selected by the ASPIRE Social Justice Committee. This year the project will be centering the Native American student population of North Dakota by raising money to support Cankdeska Cikana (means little hoop) Community College (CCCC) which houses 2 TRIO programs- SSS and ETS.
CCCC is tribal college that serves the Spirit Lake Dakota reservation community who averages 200 students per semester. In general, a CCCC student is a Native, 27 year-old female who is a single mother and usually works full-time. The reservation is located in Benson County, ND which has double the US Poverty Rate at close to 30%. Endemic poverty, historical trauma, lack of preparedness and confidence, and the resurging drug epidemic are all factors that impact the success of CCCC students – and now the pandemic!
Please consider making a donation in any amount to Cankdeska Cikana Community College by visiting this link: http://www.littlehoop.edu/donate/donations.html and clicking on the “donate” button on the bottom of the page.
Your donations will go to the “CCCC COVID-19 Angel Fund” that provides CCCC students with $25 gift cards for food, supplies, gas, etc. to three local tribal vendors. Your donations will contribute to the success, retention and livelihood of Native students at CCCC.”
