A friend of mine from Teach For America was placed at Northwest Halifax High School the same year I entered the corps (2006), and has since done AMAZING things for their track program. In 2007 (his first year at the school) their girl’s 4x100m relay team took 4th in the STATE, and they’ve returned to the State meet every year since. Those who have taught, or been involved in sports growing up, know the positive impact this can have on students, both in their investment in school, as well as future opportunities in college and beyond.
Mike has done so much for these students, and now is close to earning $50,000 through Pepsi Refresh to resurface their school track. What a great way to continue the track success at the school, as well as reward these students for all their hard work. Here’s what you can do:
