Track & field was a central part of Steve’s life from 5th grade through high school. From it, he learned team-work, the importance of hard work and training, and the thrill of when your team won. Steve brings that same passion for the sport to the Foundation Board.
The USA Track & Field Foundation provides a means to attract and guide funds to new and innovative track & field programs with an emphasis on providing opportunities for youth athletes, emerging elite athletes and distance training centers. The Foundation depends upon donations from its Board of Directors, major gifts and from generous fans of track & field.
Elite athletes are supported by the Foundation via monetary grants and participation in Run With US! (www.runwithus.org). Youth athletes are supported via monetary grants to youth clubs.
