about us

LACE UP is a nonprofit organization (501 c(3) pending) designed to empower student athletes with tools needed to pursue their goal of becoming a collegiate athlete during the COVID-19 pandemic. While all sports are being affected, we find that track and field as a sport and the students involved in the sport have been greatly impacted. Both the outdoor season for 2019 and 2020 fall season were eliminated.

THE PROBLEM

COVID-19 has increased the awareness of inequities faced by student athletes. It has created challenges for all families; however, children who live in areas of limited resources will be disproportionately affected. Oftentimes minority children use athleticism as a way to enter into higher education. If sports such as track and field are not available given the current climate or when the sport is allowed to return and student athletes are unable to participate due to internal or external reasons the nation will see further divide in the amount of minority children who are able to access college.
