Local running club will make Junior Olympics trip thanks to generous donors

News

Local kids will now get to run in the Junior Olympics thanks to a donation covering the trip’s costs.

Last week the Pond Running Club was struggling to get the much-needed funds to make that trip.

Now, a couple in Tehachapi has covered the entire cost for the expenses — a total of $8,000.

The couple who made the generous donation didn’t want to use their last name, but Teri and Gavin gave the kids the money “because they just wanted them to do well.”

The students have qualified for the Junior Olympic track and field championships in Greensboro, North Carolina next week.
