“My mom has trouble keeping the lights on, let alone paying for me to do a 5K.” –A Mid-Shore high school track and field athlete
Children who participate in sports have fewer disciplinary referrals, school absences, and are less likely to get in trouble outside of school. And children who participate in extracurricular athletic activities have higher college acceptance rates. Sometimes the cost of these outside activities is too much for a family to bear, though. Breaking Barriers for Athletes is our answer to this. Through this For All Seasons program, local children are given financial assistance for registration, transportation, and supplies to participate in extracurricular athletic events like races.
The FOR ALL SEASONS Bridge Bounders are running and walking our way across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to support this great cause. Join our team by contributing to one of our members, or sign up and run/walk with us!
