The Run As One event is part of a week long celebration known as the Siksika Nation Youth Awareness Week. It is an annual event held the week before the Siksika Nation Annual Fair. It began in 2004 and was created by the youth in the community who aspire to host positive events for the nation's youth.
Siksika Health Services began its involvement in the event by spear-heading a committee that includes the Siksika Youth Chief & Council, Post-Secondary and high school students, as well as agencies with a mandate to focus on youth and other members of the Siksika community.
This year's theme was "Rise Above" and festivities included sports events, cultural events, recreation and education based activities. The highlight of this year's event was the Run As One Music Festival which featured well known headlining acts and offered a venue for Siksika's own youth to display their musical talents.
