San Francisco Track and Field says "It Gets Better"

Federation of Gay Games member organization San Francisco Track & Field has produced a new video for the "It Gets Better" project.

The San Francisco Track &; Field Club began in the Fall of 1982, immediately following the first Gay Games in San Francisco. Dr. Tom Waddell, founder of the Gay Games, had put together a team of athletes to represent San Francisco in track and field at the Games. Those athletes had such a positive and uplifting experience from participating in the 1st Gay Games that they banded together to form the San Francisco Track & Field Club. The formation of the Club enabled them to stay together and continue training and competing in the years between each Gay Games, allowing them to strive for personal excellence in athletics, which is a hallmark of Waddell's Gay Games philosophy.

The San Francisco Track & Field Club seeks to dignify and promote gay and lesbian athletes and athletics and to be inclusive of all ages, all genders, all races and all abilities. We stress the joy of sport while attempting to nurture athletic ability, always encouraging each other to strive for personal best achievements. You set the goals; we help you get there with a training program and support that has been a model of gay sports since our beginning. We hope to provide an avenue for athletes to show their talent, pride, courage and ability to endure.

Feel free to check us out at www.sftrackandfield.com for more information. We also have our annual Pride Track Meet in August, 2011. If you'd like to participate, or get information on previous meets, you can check out www.pridemeet.org. in August, 2010, 25 SFT&FC athletes competed in Cologne for Gay Games VIII and brought home 81 medals! We are so proud to be part of the athletic/sports community and demonstrate that it is not only possible to be gay AND athletic , but be competative as well. For any questions, please contact Aaron Castillo, SFT&FC Membership/Communications Director at latinsagitarianATaolDOTcom. Continued success in 2011 everyone!
