The Alameda Education Foundation will hold a track and field contest for students at Chipman, Lincoln and Wood middle schools on May 19 and 20, next Wednesday and Thursday.
The Middle School Track Championships will start at 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19, at the College of Alameda track, while the field events will start at 3:45 p.m., on Thursday, May 20, at Encinal High School.
Admission is free but donations are requested, as the track & field program depends entirely on donations.
AEF programs aim to give Alameda public school students — like Tyrell Carrigan of Chipman (above) — access to opportunities that enrich and strengthen their educational experiences. Other athletic activities sponsored by AEF include middle-school volleyball in the fall and basketball in the winter.
The group has more information online.
