A thank you from the Prospect Park Youth Running Club

Dear Prospect Park Track Club Board,

On behalf of the young student-athletes of the Prospect Park Youth Running Club, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude for your gracious donation for $1000. This funding will enable our team to participate in additional events, this spring. As we initiate our first outdoor/spring season in PPYRC history, we continue to serve almost 100 children from our area. This year marked our 3rd cross country season, 2nd indoor season, and inaugural outdoor season. We continue to enjoy huge successes on the local, regional, and national level. Two weeks ago, 5 of our athletes competed in the 2011 USATF Indoor Youth Nationals in Chicago. All 5 medalled, and 10 year old Demian Lofsnes Scott won PPYRC's first National Championship, crossing the finish line first in the 1500m run. Our immediate success has drawn tremendous interest, and our budget constraints are always a concern. Once again, your generosity is greatly appreciated. We invite everyone at the PPTC to come out and support our youth on a sunny spring day. We have several upcomnig meets at Icahn Stadium and Redhook Park track. Our schedule can be found on our website at www.ppyrc.com. In addition, we will be encouraging our team to participate in the Dolan Run in June.
