Grove track club working their way to the top
For 13 years the Miami Coconut Grove Track Club (MCGTC) has served
our community by helping children maximize their athletic skills. This year 55 athletes ages 5 to 15 are part of the membership.
MCGTC is a self-funded organization and
relies on the hard work of volunteer coaches and parents. All season long,
there are many costs associated with attending weekly local meets, culminating
in travel to 2012 ESPN Primary National
Championships in Orlando FL (ages 7 and under) and to the AAU Junior Olympics
in Houston TX (8 years and up).
In order to participate in Nationals, the athletes must qualify through a course of regional competitions and the best move on to
the National stage. The coaches are confident that nearly all 55 athletes can
and will qualify. However, because track members and their families have to pay the cost for travel and participation
in the Nationals, many of them will not make it to that level.
Although the club has held many fundraisers throughout
the track season, raising over $7,300 so far, they still need additional
support. Despite the fact they have some financially less fortunate athletes,
they believe that every child should have the opportunity to display their talent
in the track as part of the team.
MCGTC is inviting the Coconut Grove community to sponsor this
young athletes. With your help they will continue to bring together the true
spirit of integrity to our neighborhood.
