Choctaw’s Track and Field Team seeks community support for State Competition

Choctawhatchee High School Track and Field team‘s head coach, Courtland Fuller, recently issued a heartfelt appeal to the community, asking for assistance in offsetting travel expenses for their student-athletes. 

  • This year, a record 21 students from the “Big Green” have qualified for the state competition, a testament to their hard work and dedication on the field.

Fuller emphasized the strong positive impact the team has on the community and the athletes themselves, and how important it is to continue providing these enriching opportunities.

Due to the size of the team, the logistics of the travel to Jacksonville for the state meet pose a significant challenge. Five rental vans are required to transport the athletes, and the timing of the event necessitates a three-night hotel stay. These costs, coupled with the need for meals, have led to a significant financial demand.

“As we’ve had an extraordinary number of athletes qualify for the meet this year, the associated costs have increased proportionately,” Fuller said. “Your contributions will be targeted exclusively to lessen the growing cost of taking a team to the State Finals.”

To ensure this rewarding experience continues for their team, the Choctawhatchee Track and Field coaches are reaching out directly to local businesses, families, and friends for donations. They stress that no donation is too small and that every contribution can make a significant difference.

To incentivize donors, Fuller shared that donations of $250 or more will earn recognition on the Choctawhatchee Athletic Page and the Choctawhatchee Track and Field page on social media. This gesture aims to give public acknowledgment and appreciation to the generosity of donors who step up to support these young athletes.

  • “Any donation will help,” Fuller implored, underscoring the team’s dependence on community support in these challenging times. Donations can be conveniently dropped off directly at the school.

If you are interested in helping the team, all donations can be dropped off at the school.
