The Native Health Initiative and its Running Medicine program will host the 3rd Annual Gratitude Run/Walk event at Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute (SIPI) in Albuquerque at 8am on Thanksgiving morning. NHI will also host a similar event in Farmington. Both events are FREE, amidst many Thanksgiving run/walk events that can be quite costly.
