Congrats to Yeykell Eliuth Romero Rodriquez of Nicaragua for qualifying during the preliminary round (Heat 1) in the 100M in the Tokyo Olympics.
In addition to our teams in the United States, Stride for Stride also supports a number of elite runners in Nicaragua with money to purchase shoes, gear and vitamins - vitamins are essential for runners in Nicaragua. One of those runners - Romero Rodriguez - is competing this week in the 100M at the Tokyo Olympics!! We couldn't be more excited to cheer Romero on.
Thanks to your donations we're able to increase diversity and inclusion in running by giving our team the opportunity to compete with everyone else. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting to the starting line - Stride for Stride makes that happen.
