Emerson Hill - USATF Jr Olympics


12819383_1468244182.235_funddescription.Hello Family and Friends,

It's me, Emerson Hill.  I am 8 years old and I run for the Need 4 Speed Track Club out of Conyers, Ga.  I started running last year at the age of 7 and with hard work and determination I made it to the 2015 USATF National Jr Olympics that was held in Jacksonville, FL to compete in the 8U 800M race.  I didn't win, but the experience was great!

Well, I've done it again!  I've worked and trained really hard this year, competed in many races and won many medals. I competed this past weekend in the 2016 USATF Region 4 Championship and I placed 1st in the 800M, 3rd in the 400M and 2nd in the 200M.  By placing in the top 5, I now have the chance to compete in the 2016 USATF National Jr Olympics that will be held in Sacramento, CA from July 25th - July 31st.

I am hoping to raise $3500 by July 31st to help me get to Sacramento and compete.  This is a very short notice but I know that I can count on your support.  Your donations will be used to cover airfare, hotel stay, food and athletic equipment for the week long competition. I have run plenty of miles on these 8 year old legs but I have a few more left in me, so help me "RUN" to Sacramento.  

Thank you in advance for supporting me and being a part of the final leg in my race to the 2016 USATF National Jr Olympics! "Need 4 What....SPEEEEED!"
