Despite the cancellation of much of the 2020 outdoor track and field season, we are extremely grateful for the opportunity for a handful of Nike Bowerman Track Club intra-squad meets that we have been able to compete at over the past month. Despite the races being much smaller than normal and only racing against fellow teammates, personal records have been smashed, absurdly fast times have been run, and multiple national records have been broken. We have felt the energy and enthusiasm of a much broader athletic community (even if virtually) during these events and we have been working on a way to channel this enthusiasm, excitement, and passion into fighting for racial equality.
As a club, we are committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive community, and we believe this is one of many opportunities that we have to stand up and come together in the fight for social justice and racial equality. Therefore, we bring to you the Until We All Win - Bowerman Track Club Fundraising Extravaganza, where all proceeds will be donated to the Equal Justice Initiative. We will be auctioning off special items throughout the next week until August 9, 2020.
All proceeds collected by the Bowerman Track Club through this fundraiser will be donated to Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, Equal Justice Initiative is a non-profit organization that provides legal representation to people who have been wrongly convicted of crimes, unfairly sentenced, and those who have been denied a fair trial. This organization is committed to social justice reform and changing the narrative surrounding race in America. Founder of EJI, Bryan Stevenson, has dedicated his life to representing the poor and marginalized and is committed to the pursuit of true justice. Stevenson wrote an extremely powerful book Just Mercy (turned into a 2019 motion picture), that details the incredible story of the founding of EJI. We hope you will join us in supporting the Equal Justice Initiative and the work they are doing surrounding racial justice and criminal justice reform.
