Camp facilitators will be split into three teams, including Gallup, Chinle and Shiprock.

Head facilitator for Gallup team is Dallas Touchine. Camp facilitators are Binaahni Curley, Justin Holowell, Dion John, Tyrin Begay, Niles Thomas and Casey Long.

Channon Curley is the Chinle team head facilitator. On the team are Charnelle Curley, Allison Denetchee, Daangoiina Haven, Darrin Cly, Quana Maho and Santiago Hardy.

Angelica Bedonie leads the Shiprock team as head facilitator. Team members include Garilena Cly, Kristen Ascencio, Christian Fowler and Shawvan Levi.

“Apart from knowledge to help attendees become better coaches and runners, our Indian running coaches clinic aims to offer inspiration to help young athletes make a life-long commitment to take care of their bodies. If we really do our job well, they leave with a clearer understanding of how their proactive attitudes about personal wellness can positively impact their friends, family and community members.”
