Help Our Track & Field Team

My students need new track and field equipment.

My Students

Sports equipment wears out quickly. Our track and field equipment is in need of an upgrade.

The student-athletes attend a public arts school in a low-income, high need area.

They take pride in their community and their school. Many of them are accomplished athletes in various areas as well as being above average students. They have a great work ethic when confronted with challenges.

My Project

The track and field team has been using the same equipment for many years. There have been no funds to purchase updated equipment. We need shots, discus, batons, and measuring tapes. These items will help us have a more effective practice as more students will be able to participate at one time.

Your donation will help support our students' endeavors.

Some of our students attend school because of their sport of choice and I would like to encourage that behavior. Also, these students must maintain academic eligibility in order to play. This creates a culture of high academic achievement.
