Greene Steal

A team of teenage runners is heading to a national tournament with hopes of snagging college scholarships.

But they need help getting there.

Earlier this year, TV5 introduced you to the Greene Steal track team. They were competing to reach the junior Olympics national competition in Sacramento, California.

The team is hoping to raise $15,000 with the meet just two weeks away.

The money would cover transportation and lodging for the team.

The competition is a chance for many of the athletes to be seen by college coaches.

So far, the team has raised just over $1,000 of the $15,000 they need. You can donate here.
