Track and Field Equipment for Success

My students need sled harnesses and a high jump measuring stick to prepare for their upcoming season.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My student athletes are hard workers. We manage the track program to train these athletes to use sports to propel themselves to the future. We are one of the few teams who does not make cuts of any kind, as long as the athlete works hard.

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow; the important thing is not to stop questioning" -- Albert Einstein.

We service a high number of military children but a higher number of low-income families. Our school consists of approximately 60% of the students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

Our Track and Field Team works hard both on and off the track. We are looking for new equipment to add to our training. Sled harnesses will replace old equipment that is no longer safe for our athletes to use. The more efficient and stronger our athletes can train, the strong and better result they will bring when competing.

"The difference between try and triumph is a little umph."

These sleds will then be used to train for speed while building endurance for our athletes. We are also needing a high jump measuring stick for help with efficient training for the high jump.
