The Miami Overtown Tornadoes Track & Field team will like to participate in the Championship Track Meet Houston, Texas in August 2016. Our track & field program was put together to keep children off the streets. The program utilizes the sport of track & field to cultivate the attention of juveniles between the ages of 4 thru 18. The program includes education, gang resistance, culinary, etiquettes, and anti violence colloquiums. The program consists of children that live in the Overtown community, a community that is rich in valuable history; however, the community is currently being challenged with street violence and drugs dealers & users. These are the challenges that enhance the importance of children participating in this program, keeping them off the streets. The program consisted of a roster with over 117 children from the community and has been operating under Miami Tornadoes Inc., a non-profit 5013c organization. Unfortunately, 95% of the youth participants in this program are completely financially challenged and are living below the poverty level; therefore, we are currency seeking monetary donations to keep the program running. We are lacking funding for uniforms, track equipment, track meets, running shoes, food, water/Gatorade  and out of town competition trips, approximately a $30,000 ($300 per child) yearly program. Please keep in mind, because the children in this program are living below poverty level, there are no fees collected and the program is strictly ran under donations.

Good morning, I will like to thank everyone for supporting the Miami Tornadoes Track and Field program. The program was started with just Officer Moyse, and Coach Thompson (Teacher). Our organization is continuously growing with the help of our board members, community, and everyone that has donated. Observing kids dreams come true, helping families, and bettering the community were some of our contributions in 2016. We will continue our program for many more years to help mentor, tutor, train, and love as many kids we possibly can. Once again, THANK YOU for making all things possible!

We will like to thank everyone for taking the time and effort to support the Miami Tornadoes Inc.'s Track and Field program. Thank you for helping make all things possible to help the children in so many ways. We made it close to our goal for the first competition phase by raising money, getting the kids shoes donated, and mentoring them to be on the right track in both conduct and academics. Please feel free to share the information with everyone about our program. You can also stay updated by visiting our website at: www.MiamiTornadoes.com.
Thank you from our board members, community, parents, and kids.
