A Few Words From...
March 14, 2002
On behalf of USA Track & Field, I would like to salute you and the Gift of Time Foundation for your recent initiatives to better the lives of America's youth. As the national governing body for track and field, long distance running, and racewalking in the United States, USATF understands the important role that grass roots programs play in the development of future Olympic athletes. Through programs, such as USATF's Junior Olympic program, USATF seeks to provide our young track and field athletes with the resources and support to develop into future Olympians.
The Gift of Time Foundation seeks to provide America's youth with similar resources and opportunities. Through several strategically placed institutions around the country, the Gift of Time Foundation provides our nation's youth with the resources, skills, and education necessary to enable them to develop into the next generation of academics, scientists, executives, physicians, and world class athletes. Each institution will provide children with access to educational and cultural resources, computer training, and physical fitness development, in addition to emphasizing the importance of community service.
We encourage anyone interested in supporting our next generation to join USATF in its support of the Gift of Time Foundation.
