Urban Middle School Cross Country Team Needs a Race Timer

My students need to feel proud to be on a team that supports running for our cross country team and the school gym teachers would benefit in our K-8 district with this Race Timer.

My Students

My cross country team is one of the hardest working group of kids from an urban district in Morris county, NJ. Most are beginners and have little to no experience participating in a race. I would love to utilize a race clock in our meets as well as share one with the entire K-8 gym teachers I work with. The positive impact this would have on their self esteem as well as benefiting our entire school body would be fantastic!

My Project

My urban middle school students run with a passion. We work on building skills, endurance and care. Cross Country is a great way to socialize and get healthy while creating long lasting friendships in middle school from 6th grade through 8th. The Race Clock Timer would boost their confidence and help them achieve their goals whether it's second's or minutes off their times. We would be proud to have this vital equipment for our middle school team. It would also be shared with the gym teachers too! So many would benefit with your generosity to have this race clock! It's the gift that keeps going.

Thank you for your help and support.
