July 4-7th he will be at this years 2019 Regional meet in Fargo, ND competing to be Region Champ for the 3rd year in a row. Thanks to club owner Shane Harrington who generously donated $1,000 to get him there. Shane went to the State meet July 23 to meet this amazing athlete and after his win in the 200 meter dash with a time of 24.70, Shane congratulated Peyton and presented him with a check for $1,000 that completely paid for his trip to Regionals. Justin won second place at Regionals, this past week.
After speaking with Shane about why he decided to get on board with this fundraiser, he said "My family has always loved track and field! My dad was one of the top javelin throwers in the entire US in college, my brother Luke still holds the Nebraska state javelin record, my sister Megan was a 5 time All-American in the pole vault and my daughter Kali earned a college scholarship in track as well. For me it was easy to support something I have seen help my family so much. Not to mention this young man isn't just one the the top track athletes in the US for his age he is an amazing person with grades and character to match."
His mother Kristy Hille said "without Shane's extremely generous donation, none of this would be happening. We cannot thank him enough! Regionals is a must to be able to go to the Jr. Olympics at the end of July. Shane has been our angel! Peyton is such an amazing kid. He is so very humble, kind, loving and just a dream. He cares so much about everyone and even tho he is doing such amazing things, he has never once bragged about himself, he just wants to do his best and focus on his dream of one day making it to the NFL. He has such drive and focus."
Peyton runs for Olympus Track Club and is a someone that the younger kids on his team really look up to. After Regionals is the Jr. Olympics in Sacramento, California and the family still needs help getting him there. If you would like to donate, there are several ways.
