Vinson Youth Football League is planning to host a timed 5K Run/Walk on August 7th, 2010. We have titled our event the Run With The Tigers. We are doing this as a fundraiser for our league to help with equipment, uniforms and field repairs/upgrades.

Our community here in Huntington, WV has been called the number one unhealthiest place to live in our nation by "The Associated Press", prompting Jamie Oliver to film some episodes for his "Food Revolution Show” in our area to raise awareness about the unhealthy lifestyle here.
We are the smallest youth football program in our area and we are asking for your help. Our single elementary school has an approximate enrollment of 300 children. All of the other football programs in the area draw from 2-4 elementary schools for their rosters.

We play our games at Vinson Middle School football field. Our Board of Education gives no funding to middle school football programs. Therefore, the burden falls on our youth football league to finance and maintain the entire program (including field & building maintenance) through fund raisers and sponsorship.

We are trying to buy all new uniforms for the football players, cheerleaders and majorettes, as well as wanting to repaint all of our buildings, old stadium and locker rooms. We need to put a new roof on a building for storage. These improvements are to make our youth proud and get them outside for sports and exercise to be healthier. This field is used by the Middle school for an exercise area after their lunch, soccer practice, baseball practice, softball practice and middle school and youth football games. Our football program is the pride of our community and host to 17 other leagues who come to play their games at our facility.

Any donation would go a long way toward helping us meet our goals. Thank you for your time and support!
