Support OS while Shopping
Now you have the great opportunity to raise money for One Spirit while you are shopping without paying more for your products. Click on the link below to learn how it works.
The Sponsorship program has always been an important OS program that brings assistance directly to families and elders and also promotes inter-cultural understanding and friendship. Both families and sponsors tell us frequently how much it means to them. Both seem to gain equal benefits from the program. There are about 800 sponsors in the program at this time and about 1000 children and elders on the waiting list hoping for a sponsor. The children and elders on the program have urgent needs for warm clothing, blankets, shoes, food and other basic needs.

The Colfax Marathon Ends, New Efforts Begin
Team One Spirit Returns for the 2014 NYC Marathon!
Team One Spirit runners will be back at the NYC Marathon on November 3rd for the 2014 race. Team One Spirit is excited to be a part of this amazing event for another year! After working on Hurricane Sandy clean-up efforts in 2012, and running in the 2013 NYC Marathon, the team looks forward to rejoining the New York runners. Heartened that their efforts for a youth center in Allen will soon be a reality, they now have the goal to run until ALL districts on the Pine Ridge Reservation have youth centers for ALL Lakota youth!
The Lakota 5 and other Team ONE Spirit runners face a number of difficulties when training and traveling for run events. The dedication of this remarkable group provides a constant source of inspiration.
