Michigan Indian Family Olympics

LTBB Community Health has another exciting announcement to make this week. We are going to be participating in the Michigan Indian Family Olympics this year!

The Community Health Department strives to promote health and wellness through fun, competitive, physical activities with other Michigan tribes! There are a variety of ways to get involved in this competition. Activities include: Archery, Long Jump, Jump Rope and Fitness Circuit, Softball Throw, 3 Point Basketball Shot, Running/Walking, and Lacrosse Speed Shot!

Opening Ceremonies will begin at 9 a.m. on Friday, July 22, 2022 at Central Michigan University’s Bennett Track & Field located at 1200 S. Franklin Street, Mt. Pleasant, MI 48859.  Kindly plan ahead for the travel time to the MIFO location.  Please see the attached flyer for more information.

 LTBB 2020 MIFO team incentives include paid lodging at the Soaring Eagle Waterpark in Mt. Pleasant, MI on Thursday, July 21, 2022, paid registration fees and a team t-shirt, along with breakfast and snacks/drinks during the Family Olympics.

 LTBB MIFO team members will be responsible for transportation, expenses prior to and after the event, and a hotel deposit of $50 per room for any amenities incurred during the hotel stay.

As in the past, we will need assistance with setting up and tearing down the LTBB team site.  All LTBB team members are responsible to keep the team site clean.  We do have Volunteer Positions available for LTBB team members.  Team members should arrive at the field by 9 a.m. to participate in the Opening Ceremonies and plan accordingly so you can participate in at least 4 events.  If you do not participate in at least 4 events, then you will be jeopardizing the opportunity to participate with LTBB next year.

The Registration Forms are attached, along with the flyer and rules. We will begin accepting the Registration Forms on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 until Wednesday, June 29, 2022.  You may mail Registration Forms to Little Traverse Bay Bands Community Health Department, 7500 Odawa Circle, Harbor Springs, MI  49740; or fax to (231)242-1717, Attn: Angeline Roberts; or send via email to Aeroberts@LTBBODAWA-NSN.GOV.  If you register yourself or others within the timeframe mentioned above, it is your responsibility to contact Angeline Roberts to ensure the registration is paid for by LTBB and to receive a team t-shirt.

Lodging is limited and provided on a first come, first serve basis.  Therefore, you will want to reserve your spot(s) as soon as possible.  We are requiring a minimum of 4 participants in each room and you must have 4 completed registration forms when you are reserving the room.  Lodging arrangements can be made beginning Wednesday, June 1, 2022 until Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 12 p.m., unless the allotted rooms are full prior to this date.  There will be a waiting list available if all the rooms are reserved.
