A New Pair of Sneakers for John who is a promising track star

Posted Nov 14, 2021
Starting in January, track season starts for John. He is in need of new equipment, including a light weight shoe to improve his performance on the track. John is gunning for the state championships, and having these new shoes will put him that much closer to his dream.

John is 19 years old and lives in St. Petersburg, FL

John has been in the foster care system since age seven. It is hard to believe that in less than six months he will age out of the system. Although a bit anxious regarding this life transition, John has created a future success plan to stay on track and realize his future dreams. Moving from one foster group home to another over the years has created challenges with schooling, both academically and socially. Despite obstacles, John continues to persevere with an immediate goal of obtaining his GED. Once completed, John would like to attend a local college. John is bright and articulate. Given support and encouragement, he will realize his future dreams.
