16 year old Navajo takes on the Great Aloha Run in Hawaii

From the Aloha Tower to the Aloha Stadium, sits one stretch of run way and it’s a marvellous view of Hawaii. 16 year old Navajo, Sergio Graymountain Gampong Urena ran 8.15 miles at this years Great Aloha Run. The route was near the island of Oahu, the location is famous for Waikiki or Honolulu.

Sergio’s mom, Mililani Mauka said she is proud of her son. She told the Navajo Post, her family is from the Navajo Nation, and they live in Oahu. “I come from Sawmill Arizona, my husband is Filipino from Hawaii.” she said.

Sergio said he didn’t win, but ran for a great cause, “I didn’t win, but it feels awesome, and I’m sore because I finished a run that helps support the local people”

Navajos believe in running, last year, one notable runner from Ganado, AZ Alvina Begay tried out for the U.S. Olympic, but she didn’t meet the qualifications. But nonetheless, the largest Native American Tribe is making strides in the main stream media with sports to be the best.

Like Tiger Woods best friend, Notah Begay who is a golfer who started out from a small community.

The great Aloha run is held every year on presidents day, the run brings runners, joggers, and walkers. The event helps many different charities for all the islands of Hawaii.
