Life's Short: RUN Fast

My students need personal water bottles and carriers for their upcoming training cycle and cross country season.

My Students

Our cross country program is filled with dedicated and hardworking runners. We run all over our community and surrounding communities. We often run in remote areas where water is not accessible unless we bring it ourselves. Therefore, we need the resources to be able to bring it with us.

Our student-athletes are dedicated to their sport and deserve these resources.

Our students are from a wide variety of economic situations, and many receive free and reduced-price lunches. Despite these difficult circumstances our athletes are present and give 100% each day.

My Project

Our cross country team is small but mighty. We are an Ohio division one program with approximately 20 females. We are a smaller program within the division one group, and because of this our athletes often are participating in many different extracurricular events within the same season.

We share many student-athletes with the band program, so our athletes spend their Friday nights marching late into the evening and are on the bus bright and early for a cross-country race, which makes hydration difficult.

These water bottles will be their personal bottles for the season. I will be able to use the carriers to place their bottles out on their long run routes, so water is accessible on the route without them sharing containers.
