Hi everyone. I will be coaching Boys Cross Country and Track and Field at Harding High School in Bridgeport, CT this year. I need your help. Harding High School runners do not have uniforms.


I am raising money to purchase uniforms and with your help, some team gear for our athletes. While coaching last year, the majority of my athletes raced in basketball clothing, including sneakers, long shorts, and t-shirts. Other teams in the conference sport matching, state of the art singlets and shorts, as well as warmup jackets and pants. However, this reality doesn't need to remain so. With a small donation as little as $5, a large group of people can come together to make a huge difference. Our athletes will be able to compete in their races and meets with uniforms equal to those of their peers. These uniforms can be shared between the cross country and track & field programs.


Thanks for your support and awareness. For further reading on the topic, please give the following article a read.

Hey all,

Thanks for supporting our athletes. We're proud to announce that Christian has won the New Balance Fresh Foam Sprint contest and will receive a free brand new pair of shoes this Thursday!

....And by the way - we also received our 20 new hurdles and a complete high jump pit package today. Quite a day for Harding Cross Country and Track & Field! Our fans, donors, supporters, and community are amazing. We can't wait to unpack both the equipment and our success.

Attached is a photo of all the gear at the time of delivery. We will post more photos as we unwrap it all. ...Not a bad day for Harding XC/Track!
