We're helping kids get a good start.

Given half a chance, kids turn into pretty decent adults.

And we like to think we play a small part in that transition.

For the past ten years, Atlantic Richfield Company has sponsored the Jesse Owens Junior Track Classic for boys and girls from 10 to 15 years old.

It's wholesome fun.

And it encourages healthy bodies. And minds.

Thousands participate in cities across America.

All the City Champs, winners of each event from each participating city, are then flown to a selected city to compete in the National Championships. This year, it's San Francisco.

Sure, it costs money.

But if the kids aren't worth it, who is?
