The 2011 Run Against Diabetes 5K took place on November 19 at the Salt River High School track and throughout a small portion of the Community. Participants took part in the 2-mile run/walk, 1-mile fun run or kids 50-yard dash (for ages 3-12). Rachel Seepie from the Salt River Fitness Center was encouraged the participants and also announced awards at the completion of the races.

“We had a decent turnout this year,” she explained. “Each running event we do the attendance fluctuates, but we are glad to see all the runners and walkers out here.”

Seepie said providing physical activity for Community members is important and putting together events where they can join as a team or with friends helps encourage them to sign up and take part.

Awards were given to the top finishers in each division and also a traveling Community award was handed out. Rod Marrietta from Gila River won his division and also claimed the fastest time in the 5K overall. Gila River Indian Community received the Traveling Award for having the most participants.
