The story of Abdul Nur, a North High School student who showed promise as a young runner but could not afford race entry fees, perfectly embodies the importance of Support My Club's mission. Through SMC, Abdul received a registration sponsorship for his first big race and suddenly learned how talented he was on a big stage.
Abdul said, “Before I began running, I didn’t even know if I would go to college.”
In Abdul’s senior year, he won the AIA Division I state cross country title, which opened the doors to joining Northern Arizona University’s national powerhouse distance running squad. Today, Abdul is in his final year at NAU, is sponsored by Nike, and has secured his spot on Team USA for the 2022 World Championships. Thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors, Abdul was allowed to participate, explore, and succeed in the out-of-classroom learning that is so critical to education.
