Please consider donating to the Concord Carlisle Scholarship Fund in honor of my late high school cross country coach Tom Hart, who made such an impact on my life and so many other students'!
I met Tom Hart when I was a timid incoming freshman, deciding whether I should stick with the soccer team or give high school cross country a try. He was one of those poeple you meet and you feel like you've known them your whole life, who you knew would be one of your biggest fans no matter what. As an English teacher, he had a way with words, and he convinced me that I needed to be a part of the maroon cloud that was CCXC. When I showed up for preseason and met the team that would become my family for the next four years, I never looked back.
No question, Tom Hart is the reason I fell in love with the sport. Whether it was the prerace pump up speeches or postrace kudos and lengthy play-by-play write-ups, he helped me understand running as the ultimate lesson in teamwork and fortitude. He prepared me for life with a passion that keeps me level-headed and through which I have forged my greatest friendships. He was an educator, a coach, a friend and mentor whose character I will always deeply admire. Please donate to the Concord Carlisle Scholarship Fund in his honor to help worthy students afford post-secondary education!
Also, if you don't already have a copy, I highly recommed picking up his book "First You Run, Then You Walk" - it's the perfect portrait of what an awesome guy he was. Thanks in advance for your support!!
