Tennis for Positive Tracks: May 6

A community event for kids ages 5-18

Tennis for Tracks, organized by RVC Tennis member Mason Arado, age 14, supports Positive Tracks and their mission to help young people make change through physical activity.

Event Update: Over $3,600 Raised!

On Sunday afternoon, May 6th, RVC had the great pleasure of helping to support and host Mason Arado’s “Tennis for Tracks” event, a high energy, youth-led tennis extravaganza. Over 40 kids came to show us their stuff on the court – though sweaty action included multiple athletic pursuits including foam dodgeball and CrossFit Kids activities.

The goal of Mason’s event was to raise awareness and funds for Positive Tracks – a local non profit organization which helps ages 23 and under “sweat for good” – so young people can “make change” for causes they care about, using their own minds and muscles. (Positive Tracks helped support Mason in this endeavor, as he chose to sweat for good on behalf of Positive Tracks this time around.)

We find it very cool that Mason can use tennis, a sport he loves, to support a cause he’s equally passionate about! Tennis For Tracks certainly provided awesome and active fun, super leadership experience for Mason, and civic inspiration to every other participant present – including the adults! Through this event, Mason raised over $3,600 for Positive Tracks, including a dollar-for-dollar match from a Positive Tracks Board Member!

Special thanks to Mason’s entire family who got in on the game. His brother Mason, parents Tammy and Chad, and Andrew Gunberg were all there to support, volunteering their time and energy to make sure all participants had a blast getting active for a cause. Other RVC fun-loving staff, who led the kids through super fun and productive competition in the form of a CrossFit workout.

Helping to support Positive Tracks and make Mason’s event great, was the Coop Food Store, who shared healthy snacks, seed packets, recipes, and healthy eating tips and got the kids spinning on their smoothie bike; and Game Set Mat, who provided a trunk show with a portion of proceeds benefitting Positive Tracks. Additional volunteer support came from the Lebanon High School Boys & Girls Tennis Teams who brought epic enthusiasm and instruction to the scene.

Do you know a young person who wants to apply to Positive Tracks for free help and guidance using athletics to help a cause of their choice? See details and application, here.
