Your donation will go towards 10 scholarships for Cross Country and Track camps at Michigan State University and The University of Michigan.  Our goal is to send 5 kids to each school for camp in the summer of 2020.  The cost is approx $450 per student. The campers live and eat in university residence halls and socialize with other campers while on campus. This is a tremendous opportunity for a student to attend a camp that might not otherwise be able to afford to go.
