My name is Josiah Jackson and I am a second grade student at Harmony NW Science Academy in Houston, TX. I am a straight A student in the Gifted and Talented program and my favorite subject is Math. I am writing to ask for your help and support in sponsoring me to attend the USA Track and Field Cross Country Junior Olympics, which will be held December 8, 2012 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I am the Region 12 champion and as of today I am undefeated and would like to be able to compete nationally, with the hopes of bringing home the Gold. I have been actively involved in sports since I was 3 years old. In addition to cross country, I run track, play basketball, soccer, and I swim. I like to read, play outdoors, and play video games. It is my dream to play sports on a professional level and to be a kindergarten teacher because kids need kindergarten to grow!

As you know there are many expenses connected with running on a national level and I need your help! The major expense for this once in a lifetime opportunity is travel and hotel. It is my hope that you will consider helping me to pursue one of my dreams.

In return for your sponsorship, I will send you a special autographed picture and souvenir from my trip to Albuquerque (trust me, this will be worth something in a few years :)). Please know that your support and sponsorship will mean so much to me!

Things About Josiah:

1. Since Josiah's last race, he has dropped 90 seconds from his time, which makes him a true contender for the national title!

2. Josiah has ADHD, and running has become his outlet!

3. Josiah runs everywhere (just like Forrest Gump), in fact walking is perceived as a punishment to him!

4. Josiah is a second grade student, but tested two grade levels higher on reading and math!

6. Josiah lives to run, and runs to live (literally)!!!!
