Non-Profit Raises Funds for High Schools

EUGENE, Ore. — Team Run Eugene, a local non-profit, hosted a sale on Sunday for six Springfield and Eugene high school track and field programs. New and used apparel was offered at discounted prices. The group has been around for about 18 months, but has managed to enlist the support of several well-known athletes such as two-time U.S. 5000 meter champ Lauren Fleshman and 2008 Olympian Ian Dobson.

“High school track and cross county sort of defined me and I think for a lot of us involved in this organization it’s just been really important in our lives and we want to make sure that kids have that same chance to engage as we did and have it have the same impact on them,” said Dobson.

All the proceeds are to be split evenly among the six schools.
