We have exciting news. We are seeking funding for a new track & field facility. The facility upgrade would include much needed safety equipment, but the biggest part of the project includes refinishing the existing track and rubberizing the surface. Training on rubber tracks significantly reduces injuries. This upgrade benefits the ENTIRE student body. The total cost of the project is $125,000. We have received approval from the school board to proceed as soon as we raise the entire amount. This project can be completed in as quickly as seven days once funding is raised. We could have a new track & field facility by spring, but we need your help.

The school board is NOT funding this project.  It is up to us to raise the entire amount. We have raised in excess of $20,000 thus far through car washes, t-shirt sales, donations and community sponsorships. Any donation is greatly appreciated. If you are interested, please take your donation to NHS in an envelope marked COACH LAFOLLETTE TRACK FUNDING.  If using a check, please make it out to NHS TRACK. Thank you for your support!
