One person who has supported my Mrs. Texas efforts every year is my friend Sheila Stoutmire. Sheila is a personal trainer and runs a boot camp that is fabulous! More importantly, she and her husband, former NFL great Omar Stoutmire, run the North Texas Jackrabbits. This track club has been tearing up meets all over Texas and now they have 6 relays and 20 athletes ranked All American in the National Elite Youth system.
48 of the Jackrabbits qualified for the AAU Junior Olympics coming up July 30th-August 4th in Houston. The team is currently raising funds to help out with the costs of competing. The average cost per athlete is $350 including hotel accommodations and healthy meals during their stay in Houston. To help raise funds, the Jackrabbits will host a car wash in Prosper this Saturday at Sonic located at 100 North Preston Road (near Broadway) from 9 am - 12 pm. If you can't make it to the car wash, visit www.Ntxjackrabbits.com to help out!
