What do The Hustle, an obstacle course, and slip n’ slide kickball all have in common? The 2018 Just Move It Walk/Run of course!

On Saturday, July 21, nearly 200 people came out for our annual morning event. This years’ theme was 70’s and crazy hats and socks!

This annual event which is locally run by Shining Mountain Health and Wellness with loads of help from the Sun Ute Community Center staff is fun for the whole family.

Through support from the Navajo Nation’s Just Move It (JMI) team and their dedicated staff, this series is meant to get the community together to show support for and education of physical activity as a lifelong pursuit; to help us stay healthy and prevent diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

The Just Move It Diné team puts on more than 20 walk/run events throughout the Four Corners region alone. In 2017, JMI had events in 126 communities with 42,636 participants! We hope that next year brings more people to our community and that you can join us and JUST MOVE IT!
