At this time, to minimize the risk of spreading the COVID-19 disease, Cherokee Nation Public Health is taking safety measures to protect our Cherokee Nation workforce and Cherokee Nation citizens/community members by postponing all community activities/events including the Wings 5K races for the month of June.  At that time our staff will reevaluate and determine the next steps for the upcoming months.  We thank you for your understanding at this time as the health of our Cherokee Nation community members and Cherokee Nation workforce is our first priority.

Wings Fitness Program

RunningManThe Wings Fitness Program is a program designed to promote the importance and awareness of regular physical activity, health education, and nutrition for a healthier lifestyle. This program is free and open to the public. You must reside in the Cherokee Nation service area to be a member.

What Cherokee Nation/Healthy Nation Provides For You:

CNHN covers the registration fee for 24-28 selected walk/runs throughout the year.

What You As A Wings Member Will Provide For Us:

Attend the walk/runs throughout the year. You must pre-register for each race. Healthy Nation does not accept any race day registration. Healthy Nation also keeps track of race attendance. If you miss 3 races (that you sign up for) throughout the calendar year (January-December), you will forfeit your race privileges for the next 12 months. You become “inactive” by not attending a race for 6 months consecutively. At the point of “inactive” you must provide updated contact information if anything has changed and if your health has changed, you must submit a new Wings application along with a letter from you doctor giving the okay for you to participate in physical activity.
