USATF state association sets up fund for Brown

Submitted by USATF S.C.

The USA Track & Field / South Carolina Association has set up a fund to help Coach Kwabene Brown, known to all of us in track & field as KB,  and his family through this difficult period. The fund will be accepting any donations to help Coach KB.  Every donation will go directly to KB and his family.  

Coach KB has been a fixture with the Quickstriders Track Club for many years and has worked with an amazing number of athletes over the years. He has worked tirelessly to help youth athletes achieve their potential in the sport he loves. KB has given a tremendous amount of time and energy to our sport. Now it is time for us to give back to him.

"KB is a huge part of our track & field family in South Carolina," said USATF South Carolina President Jimmy Stephens.  "There is no telling how many youth athletes he has impacted in a positive way as well as USATF/SC and our youth programs. We want to do anything we can to help him and his family though this tough time. We look forward to seeing him back out on the track doing what he does best, coaching track & field. He is in our thoughts and prayers."
