**ALL IN FOR GAGS AND NJNY TRACK CLUB** - Together we honor his legacy. Frank 'Gags' Gagliano, “The Godfather of US Track and Field,” has supported thousands of athletes over his career, and has had a positive impact in so many lives. He’s an amazing coach with the biggest heart. Let’s return the favor now!
Gags needs our help this year. NJNY Track Club doesn’t have a corporate sponsor for 2021, and their elite runners need our support as they are training to compete and achieve their dreams at the Olympic Trials, the 2022 World Championships in Eugene, Oregon and beyond.
Be a part of honoring Gag’s legacy in two ways:
1. DONATE! Donate directly to NJNY Track Club here - 100% of your donation will go straight to the cause, and the donation is tax deductible. NJNY Track Club is a 501c3 nonprofit - so please reach out if you need any help with corporate donation matching if your employer offers it. We’re hoping to raise $15,000 to help the club with expenses leading up to the Olympic Trials like coach and athletes' travel and lodging costs, much needed physical therapy appointments that are not usually covered by insurance, but are crucial to athletes' health, coaching salaries, and more.
2. Share how Gags has had a positive impact on your life by posting a picture, video or story on social media with the hashtag #becauseofGags. Gags has had a positive impact on so many of us over his 60-year-career - from coaching 15 Olympians to leading teams where so many of us have grown as people and found lifelong friends. Share your part of the story! We’ll consolidate the stories with the hashtag #becauseofGags to make a living history of Gag’s legacy. If you’ve been inspired by Gags - we want you to be a part of capturing his legacy.
Please contribute what you can, whether $5 or $500. This is a chance to support Gags and the NJNY Track Club in the pursuit of their dreams, and to honor a person who has given so much to so many of us.
