Our Mission: Toledo TNT is a non-profit organization that aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience to every Toledo student and community member through the development of a track and field athletic facility designed to promote healthy lifestyles, character, and responsible citizenship through sports and fitness.
The Situation: After a recent survey of 202 public high schools in Western Washington, we have discovered that 190 of them have all-weather tracks for their communities, students, and athletes. Sadly, this leaves Toledo as one of the 12 that are without.
In grades 7-12 in Toledo, a higher percentage of students participate in track and field thanANY other sport. At the high school level, it’s sometimes over 20% of the student body. Because of the state of the current track, Toledo has been unable to host any track and field events since 2000. Community members do not utilize the track due to uneven ground and water accumulation.
