My students are from a small, rural area that has a higher poverty rate. They have enjoyed much success throughout their high school careers but are continuing to work hard. Our school has always worked hard to make sure that we compete at the highest level and these athletes are no different.
Our athletes work hard on and off the track by participating in many extracurricular activities beyond sports.
This limits their free time and their ability to have after-school jobs. I want to do whatever I can to provide them with the equipment they need but may be out of their reach financially.
Throwing equipment is always troublesome to keep in competition shape. It takes a beating over the years and needs to be rotated out of use quite often. By supplying my athletes with the proper equipment they will be able to compete in a safe and competitive environment.
The shot puts are an important aspect of the track and field team.
Having the proper implements is essential and some athletes need different types of shot puts to compete at their best level. Carriers are made to handle a lot of weight but often wear over time so being able to replace them will keep our implements in good condition.
