All-Star Game to Host Health Fair


RAPID CITY—The Great Plains Tribal Leaders Health Board is gearing up to collaborate with the Lakota All-Star game, enhancing the overall experience for both participants and attendees.

The partnership between the Great Plains Tribal Leaders and the Lakota All-Star Game promises to infuse the annual basketball competition in Rapid City with a new dimension—a health fair. Set against the backdrop of intense basketball action, this health fair aims to promote well-being and community engagement.

Scheduled to commence at 10:00 AM on Saturday, March 30, at the Monument in Rapid City, the event is poised to attract Native American basketball talent nationwide. Enthusiasts can anticipate a full day of captivating basketball showdowns featuring All-Star Teams comprising male and female college and high school players.

However, the excitement doesn’t stop at the basketball courts. In parallel with the gripping games, the Health Board has planned two additional events to enrich the day’s festivities at the Monument. From 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, an Easter Egg Hunt will occur outdoors near Memorial Park, providing a delightful activity for families and children to partake in between games. Inside the arena, attendees can explore multiple health-focused booths set up by the Health Board, offering valuable resources and information to the community.

The collaboration between the Great Plains Tribal Leaders Health Board and the Lakota All-Star Game elevates the event experience by seamlessly integrating health awareness with sports entertainment. It underscores the importance of holistic well-being within indigenous communities. This initiative exemplifies the power of partnerships in fostering comprehensive support systems and promoting healthier lifestyles.

As participants and spectators celebrate athleticism and cultural pride, they are encouraged to prioritize their health and wellness, ensuring a vibrant and resilient community for generations to come.
