From Kittitas Secondary School
[Story included in the first edition of InvestED's book, Inspiring Dreams, Actions Generosity (2007)]
One of our students was very excited to try out for the track team. He went to practice everyday and worked very hard. This student never complained that he didn't have track shoes and continued running. The track coach came to the office and asked if we knew of any programs to help get this child a pair of running shoes. We purchased running shoes and athletic socks with money from the InvestED Fund. The student was so excited; he tried to thank everyone in the office, as well as the coaches and staff.
The new shoes helped with his track career and with his self esteem.
