Running Strong for American Indian Youth®
For every bottle of Red Canyon Bottled Water sold, Red Canyon Water will donate $.06 to Running Strong’s Clean Water Program.
For many Native Americans on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, access to potable water remains unattainable. For some residents, who may live as close to just over 100 feet of the service line, the water simply passes them by as the costs to run a line to their home and tap into the main line is out of reach. Many of these families have been on the waiting to be connected to the water line for years, on a waiting list of almost 500 households.
In fall 2015, Running Strong returned to its roots with a pilot program to provide families with what most Americans take for granted – running water – by connecting their homes to the Rural Water Supply line.

Pine Ridge Indian Reservation
In Fall 2015, Running Strong committed to connect five families to the water line, to get them clean water right away.
We are happy to report that despite the snow, rain, and frozen ground of the winter months, the first 5 have been completed, with more to be completed in the coming months. Thank you!
We hope to help many more families in the years to come.
