Spirit of Syilx Youth Unity Run


We run for our people and our land

Between 140 and 200 Okanagan Nation members will come together over the multi-day event, with a minimum of 100 partakers joining for the entire event. Based on the previous years, the average age of runners will be in between the ages of 14 and 18, with the youngest runner being 5 and the oldest in their 60’s.  The majority of the runners will be members of Okanagan Nation communities who are chaperoned by designated community members. If you have youth that would like to participate, please contact your local member community youth worker or Wellness/Health department. If you would like to bring your own youth or yourselves please register directly with the ONA.

In 2020, the ONA hosted their first virtual Unity Run due to social distancing and isolation precautions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This event occurs annually on the first weekend in June!
