How You Can Help
The Austin Ed Fund is fundraising to support the "Back the Track" initiative at Austin High School to resurface and renovate the track, which is currently in poor condition and unsafe for students and community members. Austin High School is located in the heart of Austin, Texas, adjacent to the iconic Lady Bird Lake and the Roy and Ann Butler Hike and Bike Trail. Open to the public, hundreds of runners, athletes, and students in our community enjoy the use of the Austin High track on a daily basis. The track is truly Austin’s fitness hub.
Additionally, the Austin Ed Fund is fundraising to support their Student Opportunity Fund Program, which supports small campus-based projects that provide educational enhancement for economically disadvantaged students in Austin ISD.
