TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – As the 2010 track and field season continues to near, FSU assistant coach Jackie Richards, alongside the rest of the Seminole family, were busy raising money for the Salvation Army Adopt a Family project for the fifth consecutive year.
“This is just a fantastic charity and one that our team has rallied around,” FSU head coach Bob Braman said. “I am so proud our athletes and coaches donated over $1100 dollars for gifts for those kids.”
After all was said and done, both the FSU men’s and women’s programs were able to raise $1,124.50 dollars to bring Christmas to seven less fortunate children. Coach Braman’s distance squad brought in the most with $258 dollars with associate head coach Harlis Meaders’ throwers bringing in $173 dollars and assistant coach Dennis Nobles’ jumpers and pole vaulters posting a notable $172 dollars. Women’s cross country head coach Karen Harvey led her team to raise $150 dollars, while assistance coach Ken Harnden and the men’s sprinters donated $129 and Richards’ women’s sprinters gave $117.
