Speakers: 

Tarrant Cross Child: After winning the Saskatchewan Marathon in 1998 Tarrant Cross Child was set to rise through the Canadian long distance running ranks, but addiction to alcohol and gambling took over his life in the years following. An attempt to take his own life in 2014 led Tarrant into a rehabilitation program. During his year-long stay in rehabilitation Tarrant began running again - and he hasn’t stopped since. Tarrant is now training with a high-performance running group in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; and sharing his message of hope and restoration with people across North America. In 2015, along with his wife and four children, Tarrant founded Child of the Cross Running Clinics, now called Prairie Run Crew.
Tarrant holds nothing back when sharing an open and honest message about mental illness and addiction, and how he found hope and the strength to overcome. Tarrant is a Niitsitapi from Kainai, a member tribe of the Blackfoot Confederacy.

Joel Pedersen is the founder of Fitness 2J2, a socially responsible community-based health and wellness company that provides running, jogging, and walking programs, along with youth and women's self-defence. Prior to Fitness 2J2, Joel was a police officer with the Saskatoon Police Service for 25 years. He is currently a member of the Canadian Armed Forces Army Reserve Force, with over 33 years of continuous service.  He has been a runner and active in sports and recreation since he could be on the go.  He was born in Saskatoon, a member of the Fond du Lac FN and connected to the Mikisew Cree FN.

Jamie Lerat continues to keep the legacy of her great-Mooshum Paul Acoose alive by being an avid runner.  While Jamie would not be successful in defeating her Mooshum’s world records, she draws upon his and other Mooshums’ spirits to provide the energy, endurance and determination to complete her long-distance runs.  For Jamie maintaining a healthy life balance is attributed to the 25 years as a group fitness instructor. If you have been a participant in one of her classes, you may notice how she weaves pieces of her Cree culture into the delivery of her class.  As a daughter of a father who was incarcerated for many years and a mother who is a residential school survivor, it is imperative Jamie contribute to being a positive role model for Indigenous youth, especially her community, Cowessess First Nation. 

Hosted by Mary Culbertson, the Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan.
