Welcome to the Grant You Wings Track Club Fundraising Campaign
- I'm Coach Andrew Grant, founder and Head Coach of the Grant You Wings Track Club. We are a USATF and an AAU youth track and field club in New York City. We are a 501(c)(3) and are in our 7th season in 2019.
- We have a team of 15 - 30 kids, many of whom will have a great opportunity to head to both the regional and national championship meets this year and it would be great to help defer some of the costs for them by raising some additional funds.
Why We Are Raising Funds
- The majority of the funds will be put aside for out-of-state travel expenses, but we also like to be able to not turn away any child due to financial need - so this is another reason for our donation request. Lastly, uniforms, running footwear and things like stopwatches, shot puts, discuses, javelins, tents, starting blocks, training/speed equipment, etc. are all things we need to update and replace annually and don't get covered by basic registration dues.
How I Got Here
- I and Assistant Coaches Kathyann Goddard-Phillips and Damoya Hall-Reid have been coaching for nearly 30 years combined and are now in our 7th season with Grant You Wings. We both have a love for track & field and helping young people to first enjoy the sport of track & field and then reach their potential if they have the desire to do so.
- We have kids primarily from Queens and the surrounding areas (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, Nassau and Suffolk County) ranging in ages from 5 to 18 years old. We've had nearly all our kids improve each year, with a good number of whom have had wonderful results at the district, region and national level.
Join My Team and Spread the Word!
- While I realize there are many groups, causes and people who ask for donations from you every year, I'm hoping that your belief in what we are doing resonates enough with you to give what you can. Because we are a 501(c)(3) this donation is tax-deductible. Please spread the word on your social media channels and again, thank you for any and all contributions you can muster.
