MCDC 2020 Elite Athlete Travel Assistance

Donation protected
The Music CIty Distance Carnival is in its 18th year. This year will see hundreds of athletes trying to qualify for the U.S Olympic Trials in Eugene, OR a couple of weeks later, and then the Olympic Games in Tokyo starting in late July. Contrary to what many might think, MCDC typically operates at a loss, and many national class athletes, even Olympians, although “sponsored”, can barely makes ends meet. I do everything I can to provide as much assistance as I can, but it costs about $45,000 to put on this event, my track rental fees just went up 50%, and I cannot keep gambling on the event maybe breaking even. So I am appealing to you, my friends in the running community, to help out, to help this meet be the best it can be. Your donation will be used to assist financially strapped elite athletes with travel/accommodation for MCDC. Thanks for any help you can provide!
