Chicago Bear Levi Horn
FLAGSTAFF, ARIZONA - Chicago Bear Levi Horn (Northern Cheyenne) will join Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) Director Keith Moore in Flagstaff, Arizona on Tuesday to announce the winner of the President’s Active Lifestyle Award.
Horn of the Chicago Bears, who is representing Nike N7, the company’s commitment to bring access to sports to American Indian and Aboriginal communities, will join Director Moore in presenting the award to the Kinlani Bordertown Dormitory.
President’s Active Lifestyle Award is a six week physical fitness challenge managed by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.
“This event commemorates the positive and inspirational efforts of our children to begin to address the many health concerns that currently face Indian Country,” said Director of the BIE Keith Moore.
“Sticking to anything for six weeks is hard, but to have virtually an entire dormitory and staff succeed at this challenge is quite remarkable and really speaks to the character of the Kinlani Dorm.”
The President’s Active Lifestyle Award Challenge ran from February 9 through April 29, 2011. To successfully complete the challenge, children under the age of 18 had to complete 60 minutes of physical activity five days a week for six weeks, and adults had to complete 30 minutes of physical activity for the same duration.
