UPPER MOENKOPI, Ariz. - Tuba City Health Promotions held their annual "Just Move It" event June 15 at the Upper Village of Moenkopi. According to Brooke Holliday, Health Promotions coordinator, there was an estimated crowd of about 500 participants. It was a great day to be out and get active.

The Just Move It (JMI) program was initiated to get people more active. According to Robyn Maho, Health Promotions Coordinator, the events are intended to get community members more active and adopt healthy lifestyles. Participants choose from the 10k run, 5k run or the 3k walk.

Runners and walkers went through both the upper and lower villages and by the spring where participants drank fresh spring water. Along the route, spectators yelled words of support in Hopi and encouraged the runners and walkers to stay strong. It was truly a one of kind event for Moenkopi.

Various JMI events are sponsored by Health Promotions in service units throughout the western Navajo Agency in places such as Kaibeto, Tonalea, Page, Cameron, Lechee, Gap and Flagstaff.

Participants are rewarded with shirts, water bottles, backpacks and other goodies depending on the number of events attended. The biggest prize is a pullover for participating in five or more events.

This is the 12th year of JMI, and every year many community members come out to participate.
