THE STORY:

A Message From Coach A/Mr. A 

Dear Friends/Family/Former Students, Community I have decided to run the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon to raise funds for my Norcross Community Youth Sports Programs. I am asking for your support to be able to continue to offer sports to the youth in my community at no cost. Our community schools are Title 1 where a vast number of our students are on free or reduced lunch. Norcross Community Youth Sports combat childhood obesity and inspire youth to achieve health and fitness through running and soccer. Character building and community service are emphasized, leading our young athletes to become productive citizens starting at a young age. Our "girl power" soccer program has impacted hundreds of young girls since it was initiated in 2007, empowering them through the sport of soccer. Our running program has only been in existence for three years, but has given lots of a young runners an opportunity to compete in track, cross country, and running for pleasure. Through the Norcross Community Youth programs children are empowered with the knowledge they need to make smart and health lifestyle choices. Your giving helps Norcross Community Sports to: *Provide resources to purchase uniforms, running shoes, and soccer equipment. *Provide resources allowing our youth to participate in a soccer league and soccer tournaments. *Provide resources allowing our youth to participate in cross country events, track and field, local road races, and fun run trips *Reach children of all fitness levels. * Prevent overweight or obese children from eventually suffering heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses Whether you are runner, soccer player, have worked with children, or have kids yourself, I hope you will join me in my mission and message of movement and fitness. See you at the finish line! Coach A
