Supporters Gather for "Heating the Rez" Run

Posted:

Even with the blustery winds, over 40 people bust out their winter running gear for a good cause.

It's the "Heating the Rez" 5K/10K one mile walk and run.

The race is a fundraiser in conjunction with the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission and the YMCA.

100 percent of the proceeds go toward the "Heating the Rez" Campaign.

This issue hits close to home for one participant, Delane Gomez, as his family also struggled through the cold winters.

"Two hundred and fifty dollars, you have to have in order for them to even come out to your place and put in propane and, you know, that's a lot of money to come up with and if it wasn't for like me and my mom both working, you know, we wouldn't have that opportunity to pay that and, you know, get the propane," says Delane Gomez, Participant in "Heating the Rez" Run.

If you'd like to make a donation to the campaign, you can go to www.indiegogo.com through March 19th.
