My Students

If anyone has ever seen a student light up when they get their first taste of personal success, then you know what drives me to create this. Having worked with our track and cross country teams the past three seasons, and seeing their desire to get better and, more importantly, feel better, I've been inspired to start a Summer Running Club. I'll be working with students who mostly have never competed before, and I want to make it a great experience.

My Project

Many of my students have never competed, and many are stretching themselves into new territory. Seeing them compete with shoes that are falling apart because of where they come from is heart breaking, but they would never give anything than less when wearing them. I think getting a kid hooked on running taps into their self-worth and gives them a lifelong skill that can help them get out of the house, meeting new people, creating memories that will last a lifetime. My students need their first pair of running shoes for the season.

I think the feeling you get when you lace up a new pair of shoes will help them feel a part of something bigger, feel that they are valued.
