Athletic wear for Jalen to run quickly on the track

Posted Oct 25, 2023
Jalen has just started college and is on the track and field team. He wants to get new equipment to perform better as the college level is much more competitive than when Jalen was running in high school. He would love to go to the store and pick out what he needs in order to improve his speed and endurance. He will need some shoes and athleticwear.

Jalen is 20 years old and lives in CA

Jalen is a current non-minor dependent foster youth who has low self-esteem issues due to his parents' verbal and emotional abuse. Jalen has overcome adversity from the abuse and is now in a supportive living situation with a foster family that truly cares about his well-being. Jalen reported that for the first time, he is feeling positive about his capabilities as a student-athlete. In high school, Jalen was a track and field star and won several track meets as a senior. Jalen was given a scholarship due to his athletic abilities and is excited for that adventure. Jalen is working very hard and doing his best in both academics and sports, as he is reporting that he is getting A's thus far in college.
