From 1980 to 2000, the counties that make up Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota comprised the poorest of our nation's 3,143 counties. This race and fundraiser helps fund volunteer projects that help the people affected by the extreme poverty on this reservation. The unemployment rate is 80-90% and their per capita income is $4000 per year. Can you imagine trying to make ends meet on less than $80 a week.
